Digitising two centuries of Indian printed books
 
02:01
The British Library holds the world’s largest single collection of early printed South Asian-language books, many of them now unique. Its collections include 20,000 Indian manuscripts, the earliest of which date back almost 2,000 years, as well as countless other materials from the region. This collection is the most important outside South Asia, and offers a wealth of research material tracing India’s rich literary heritage. The Two Centuries of Indian Print: 1713–1914 project will digitise and make freely available this rich collection of early South Asian-language early printed books, ensuring preservation of fragile originals for future generations. The project will encompass digitising 1,000 books in Bengali, amounting to 200,000 pages, as well as enhancing the catalogue records to automate searching and aid discovery by researchers. Demand for early Bengali printed works in the Library’s collection is particularly high, and digitisation will make them available to researchers beyond the Library’s Reading Rooms, giving global access to the British Library’s South Asian printed collections, many of which are now rare or unique. Promoting advances in research, access to cultural heritage, and progress in international relations lie at the heart of the British Library’s core purposes, and Two Centuries of Indian Print will work toward fulfilling these goals. The initiative is in partnership with School of Cultural Texts and Records (SCTR) of Jadavpur University, Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, and the Library at SOAS University of London, working with the National Library of India, the National Mission on Libraries, and other institutions in India.

The British Museum, located in the Bloomsbury area of London, in the United Kingdom, is a public institution dedicated to human history, art and culture. It s permanent collection numbers some 8 million works, and is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence having been widely sourced during the era of the British Empire, and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.It is the first national public museum in the world. The British Museum was established in 1753, largely based on the collections of the Irish physician and scientist Sir Hans Sloane. It s expansion over the following two and a half centuries was largely a result of expanding British and has resulted in the creation of several branch institutions, the first being the British Museum (Natural History) – now the Natural History Museum – in 1881. In 1973, the British Library Act 1972 detached the library department from the British Museum, but it continued to host the now separated British Library in the same Reading Room and building as the museum until 1997. The museum is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and as with all other national museums in the United Kingdom it charges no admission fee, except for loan exhibitions. Its ownership of some of its most famous objects originating in other countries is disputed and remains the subject of international controversy, most notably in the case of the Parthenon Marbles Today the museum no longer houses collections of natural history, and the books and manuscripts it once held now form part of the independent British Library. The museum nevertheless preserves its universality in its collections of art facts representing the cultures of the world, ancient and modern. The original 1753 collection has grown to over thirteen million objects at the British Museum, 70 million at the Natural History Museum and 150 million at the British Library. The Round Reading Room, which was designed by the architect Sydney Smirke, opened in 1857. For almost 150 years researchers came here to consult the museum's vast library. The Reading Room closed in 1997 when the national library (the British Library) moved to a new building at St Pancras. Today it has been transformed into the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Centre. With the bookstacks in the central courtyard of the museum empty, the demolition for Lord Foster's glass-roofed Great Court could begin. The Great Court, opened in 2000, while undoubtedly improving circulation around the museum, was criticized for having a lack of exhibition space at a time when the museum was in serious financial difficulties and many galleries were closed to the public. There is also a "Highlights" database with longer entries on over 4,000 objects, and several online research catalog and online journals. In 2013 the museum's website received 19.5 millions visits, an increase of 47% from the previous year. In 2013 the museum received a record 6.7 million visitors, an increase of 20% from the previous year. Popular exhibitions including "Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum" and "Ice Age Art" are credited with helping fuel the increase in visitors. Plans were announced in September 2014 to recreate the entire building along with all exhibits in the video game Minecraft in conjunction with members of the public The British Museum is a museum in London dedicated to human history and culture. Its permanent collection, numbering some 8 million works, is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present. The British Museum was established in 1753, largely based on the collections of the physician and scientist Sir Hans Sloane. The museum first opened to the public on 15 January 1759 in Montagu House in Bloomsbury, on the site of the current museum building. It s expansion over the following two and a half centuries was largely a result of an expanding British colonial footprint and has resulted in the creation of several branch institutions, the first being the British Museum in South Kensington in 1881.

Beyond MARC: BIBFRAME and the Future of Bibliographic Data
 
48:06
The Bibliographic Framework Initiative, or BIBFRAME, is intended to provide a replacement to the MARC format as an encoding standard for library catalogs. Its aim is to move library data into a Linked Data format, allowing it to interact with other data on the Web. This session will cover the basics of BIBFRAME, describe what it can provide for users of library catalogs that MARC can’t, and outline what librarians should be aware of regarding this change in the cataloging landscape.

(30 Jan 2009) SHOTLIST 1. Wide of street leading to Vatican 2. Long shot of Saint Peter's Basilica 3. Entrance to conference 4. Ancient Hebrew manuscripts in glass case 5. Various close ups of manuscripts 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Mordechay Lewy, Ambassador of Israel to the Holy See: "The Vatican library has inherited a lot of other libraries and the other libraries were in contact with Jewish collectors because Hebrew manuscripts were always very much in the limelight of scholars since medieval times. You know that the knowledge of Hebrew was by people who were well educated, scholars. Always interesting because it is the language of the Bible." 7. Various close ups of manuscript 8. SOUNDBITE (Italian) Cardinal Raffaele Farina, Archivist and librarian of the Holy Roman Church: "It is a piece of work, a catalogue, of manuscripts in Hebrew language belonging to the Vatican Library. So we offer the scientific world a tool to work that is then used a little bit at a time, depending on needs, and that comes to be known. This is the result of long collaboration between the Vatican Library and the National Library of Israel, and an institute created on purpose for the microfilming of manuscripts that the National Library of Israel has reproduced more or less everywhere in the world." 9. Catalogue of Hebrew manuscripts in the Vatican Library 10. Various of catalogue 11. Various of news conference STORYLINE The Vatican library on Friday, presented a newly published catalogue of all the Hebrew manuscripts kept in its library. The book contains all of the Vatican manuscripts in Hebrew script, a total of around 800 items spread across eleven different collections. It was edited by staff at the National Library of Israel who work to conserve microfilmed Hebrew manuscripts located in different parts of the world. Cardinal Raffaele Farina, archivist and librarian of the Holy Roman Church, said the work represents an important example of co-operation between the Vatican and Israel. According to the Vatican, this is the first catalogue to appear since the "Catalogus" published in the eighteenth-century by Giuseppe Simonio Assemani. The event was attended by the Israeli ambassador to the Holy See, Mordechay Lewy. It comes during a period of tension between the Vatican and Israel over Pope Benedict XVI decision to revoke the excommunication of a bishop who says no Jews were gassed during the Holocaust. The decision provoked an outcry among Jews.

He led the Top of the Pops orchestra for sixteen years, wrote a catalogue of library music, and had many of his pieces used as the theme music to television series. Born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Johnny Pearson showed talent with the piano at an early age. By nine, he had won a scholarship with the London Academy of Music. Here he spent four years under English pianist, Solomon. In his teens, he would give classical recitals, but his true love at the time was jazz. His first band was the Rhythm Makers. After World War II, he signed up and became one of the founding members of the Malcolm Mitchell Trio. After leaving the Malcolm Mitchell Trio, Pearson turned his talents to British radio, as well as performing in the Peter York Concert Orchestra. By 1960, he was conducting the Romance in Rhythm Orchestra. He recorded two singles for Parlophone, "Waterfall" in mid 1959, and "Theme from an L shaped room" in 1962. He was then offered a solo album deal with Oriole Records, which first teamed him up with John Schroeder. The Oriole album, Piano Sweet - Piano Wild was released in 1962 and was Johnny Pearson's first full vinyl album release. Also there was a 45 single released, "Ooh La La", in 1962 but this track and its b-side did not appear on the album. After the Oriole releases, Johnny Pearson continued to perform with various concert orchestras until 1964. Sounds Orchestral was an idea by John Schroeder, who had moved from Oriole Records to become the label manager at Pye Records and was interested in producing and instrumental version of the US hit song "Cast Your Fate to the Wind". This had been suggested to him at the time by Pye staff member, Tony Reeves. As his project moved to fruition, Schroeder looked for a piano player. His efforts came about when he was reminded of Johnny Pearson from a few years earlier, after he heard him on Radio Luxembourg. Initially paid a session fee to record "Cast Your Fate to the Wind", Pearson was subsequently made a full partner in the Sounds Orchestral project. "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" was a number 5 hit in the UK Singles Chart in early 1965. Sounds Orchestral would end up recording some seventeen albums between 1965 and 1977. Some have subsequently been reissued on CD. Pearson first came into contact with the BBC's Top of the Pops, in early 1965. Sounds Orchestral had just charted with "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", which featured on the first Top Of The Pops show. The following year, in 1966, Pearson took charge of the Top Of The Pops Orchestra. This would be a position he would fill for the next fifteen years, finally leaving the series in late 1981. In 1966, Johnny Pearson also started his long association with the KPM library record label. KPM was originally known as Keith Prowse Music. KPM would later became part of the EMI Group of companies but was able to retain its independence due to its specialist nature. Johnny Pearsons involvement with KPM was to last many years until 1978, which is when Johnny Pearson switched over his music library efforts to Bruton Music. Johnny Pearson would however again later return to KPM during 1988. As leader of the Johnny Pearson Orchestra, he reached number 8 in the United Kingdom chart in early 1972 with "Sleepy Shores", the theme from the television series Owen, M.D.. The Johnny Pearson Orchestra, which as a musical project was begun in 1972, ran side by side with his other projects. At the time, these projects included working on albums with John Schroeder for Sounds Orchestral and also providing library music to Britain's KPM Records. Pearson worked together with British singer Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield and The Carpenters (production). He created some world famous themes for television, such as "All creatures great and small" and "Heavy Action", originally used by the BBC for their show "Superstars" but later adopted by American broadcaster ABC for their show "Monday Night Football". After the 1980s, Pearson made occasional live appearances as part of a quartet. EL RIO Composed by Johnny Pearson for the A&M Records album "Viva Stereo" (1970) with an arrangement by Chuck Anderson. MHO Could easily have been the soundtrack theme for a western or tv series. Great melody, wonderful arrangement, perfect use of the available instrumentation. Up tempo all the way - The ideal music we thought to feature in our theme presentation "Running Wild, Running Free" ;-) Enjoy !
