The Cataloguing tool will be an in-house built cataloguing client, which will eliminate the need for using two different clients in participating libraries. Harmonisation of the bibliographical cataloguing will ensure that the data in the repository is interoperable. At the moment the format used in the repository is MARC 21 and the cataloguing rules applied are ISBD Consolidated, but we are also making preparations for future developments, such as RDA. National Metadata Repository piloting Universities of Applied Sciences: Central Ostrobothnia University of Applied Sciences Library, HAMK University of Applied Sciences Library and HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences Library Public libraries: Kokkola City Library - Regional Library and Tampere City Library - Pirkanmaa Regional Library System details At present Aleph library system (by ExLibris) and the participating libraries are using Voyager (also by ExLibris) for their own databases. Records are catalogued in the repository and then replicated to local databases according to specific filtering rules. The expansion to cover all library sectors will bring more library systems into the structure. In the future the operational environment of the Metadata Repository will most certainly differ from today's solution and therefore the concept is not constrained by any library system. National Metadata Repository current status Piloting with public libraries and libraries of universities of applied sciences in Standards for joining the Metadata Repository and for cataloguing into it Tool box for new participants Parameters and control for loading the new databases into the repository Testing National Metadata Repository outcome The project will substantially change the cataloguing processes in libraries The National Metadata Repository will offer a new working environment for the production of bibliographic data The National Metadata Repository will streamline the description process significantly: libraries can utilise the work made by others and the need for separate descriptions will decrease National Metadata Repository outcome As a centralised data pool The National Metadata Repository is the core of the Next Generation Library System, which is also being developed in Finland. The metadata contained in it can be presented for users via various public interfaces.
