Abstract

Presenting a conceptual framework for organizing Persian serials based on the PRESSoo model

PRESSoo is a conceptual model for expressing bibliographic information of continuing resources. The purpose of this paper is to present a conceptual framework for describing Persian serials in the linked data world. This research is an evaluative survey study. The population of this study is 90 Library and Information Science serials of the National Library of Iran. First, a checklist is made based on the characteristics of Persian serials and classes of PRESSoo model. The results showed that 59 IRANMARC fields are compatible with PRESSoo triples. Titles, publishing information, frequency, start date of publication, language, issuing body and classification numbers are inserted in all records. ISSN number of 23 records are mentioned in the records. One index, one supplement and one special issue are observed. In studied records 30 title changes observed. These changes include: continuation, merge, substitution and separation. In order to better describe Persian resources in the linked data world it is necessary to pay more attention to complete and accurate cataloguing of serials and object-oriented modelling. Some characteristics of serials such as start and end date were absent from the records, especially for ceased serials. Information about splits, merges, absorption, separation, title changes, publisher changes and frequency changes should be added to records in appropriate fields. New models and technologies such as PRESSoo and linked data environment are more flexible to describe resources. Iranian libraries should pay more attention to implementing PRESSoo model for describing serials in the context of semantic web.
