What is MIC?: 

What is MIC? Window to the world’s moving image collections for discovery, access, preservation Research and Collaboration portal - providing new technology base and research space for moving image organizations. Portal for integrating moving images into 21st century learning. Library of Congress / Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) Collaboration. Significant contribution to the semantic web.

What is MIC: 

What is MIC A project of NSF’s National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Well, really the National Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Digital Library www.nsdl.org A major national source for access to any kind of information about the sciences, aimed at K-16 education 119 NSF funded projects are contributing to the NSDL

The MIC Mission: 

The MIC Mission To immerse moving images in the education mainstream, recognizing that what society uses, it values, and what it values, it preserves.

Who is MIC?: 

Who is MIC? Library of Congress - Host Site AMIA - Association of Moving Image Archives - Originator and Sponsor Governing Committees Steering Technical Education andamp; Outreach Development Team: -- Rutgers University Libraries (SCILS) -- Georgia Tech -- University of Washington

Alpha Implementer Sites: 

Alpha Implementer Sites Science sites CNN Library of Congress National Geographic Television National Library of Medicine Oregon Health and Science University Research Channel (University of Washington) Smithsonian Institution

Alpha Implementer Sites: 

Alpha Implementer Sites Humanities sites Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection (UGa) Northeast Historic Film Pacific Film Archive Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research Prelinger Archive


MIC Time Line National Film Preservation Board and Association of Moving Image Archivists hire consultant (Grace Agnew) to design a union catalog 1999 2002 National Science Foundation awards a National Science Digital Library Grant to Rutgers, Georgia Tech and University of Washington to develop the MIC 2004 MIC goes live. Technology Transfer to Library of Congress 'Digital Culpeper'

MIC’s Basic Components: 

MIC’s Basic Components Union Catalog Organization Directory Database Cataloging Utility Dynamic, contextual portals Individual web portals for each participating archive Education and Outreach Space


Archives Database andlt;archiveIDandgt; Data registry andlt;semantic registry data elementsandgt; andlt;MARC Core elementsandgt; andlt;Dublin Core elementsandgt; andlt;other metadata maps, as desiredandgt; andlt; Archive maps (attribute for each includes archive’s data label and element order number for each data element) Element Tables Tables for each registered element – label and value contained within each element. OAI Table andlt;archiveIDandgt; andlt;recordIDandgt; andlt;datestamp-creationandgt;andlt;datestamp-modificationandgt; andlt;datestamp-deletionandgt; Indexing Tables Created by the search engine from searchable fielded data. Cataloging Utility XSLT Export Utility: MARC; Dublin Core; MARC andamp; DC in XML and XML/RDF field-delimited Mapping/Ingest Utility Global Search, Retrieval and Web Display Archive-specific Search, Retrieval and Web Display Archive Format MIC Design

The MIC Approach: 

The MIC Approach PROBLEM: There is no one place for discovery of moving image materials

Union Catalog: 

Union Catalog The 'Who has what' database Must reach across entire spectrum of collections large, high-profile collections small, specialized collections public/private/non-profit television stations/networks/motion picture studios theatrical features andamp; home movies/fiction andamp; non-fiction/edited andamp; unedited, avant-garde/experimental, etc. multitude of formats

Union Catalog: 

Union Catalog Maps/displays/exports in various metadata schema MARC for interoperability, esp. with print materials Dublin Core (XML) for data sharing, ease of use MPEG-7 for non-textual indexing, segmenting IEEE LOM for educational portals (Science goes to the movies) Each archive’s own schema - for local ownership Solution: MIC Core Registry of data elements specific to any moving image collections

Core Metadata Registry Maps: 

Core Metadata Registry Maps

The MIC Approach: 

The MIC Approach PROBLEM: Not all repositories will contribute to a union catalog

Archive Directory: 

Archive Directory Searchable directory of moving image repositories Contact information, home page URL, logo Collection strengths (forms, subjects) and size Activities (programming, preservation, cataloging, etc.) How to obtain materials, etc. Pre-test ended January 17, 2003 Revision of data elements underway!

Archive Directory: 

Archive Directory Generates 'domain maps' to generate dynamic graphical representations of the community University of Washington, in collaboration with Internet-2, will develop Shibboleth Authentication/Authorization for organization data managers--to edit and manage their own directory entry.

Archive Directory: 

Archive Directory Means for user to pre-select archives to search against role subject areas formats accessibility Using drop-down menu 'domain-at-a-glance' pages Directory search to identify archives to search against

Domain maps: 

Domain maps

“Clickable” maps to browse by location: 

'Clickable' maps to browse by location UCLA Film and Television Archive, Hollywood, CA Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley, CA Academy Film Archive, Hollywood, CA Accessibility: Text-based alphabetic browsing will also be provided.

The MIC Approach: 

The MIC Approach Once we have the ability to accept records, who will contribute?

The MIC Approach: 

The MIC Approach PROBLEM: Repositories don’t want calls for unavailable/restricted films. Some organizations don’t serve the public but will loan to other archives.

Description with Archive Data: 

Description with Archive Data Osa Johnson in Africa. United States : Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum, 2004. Documentary. 1 videocassette of 1 (VHS) (30 min.) : sd., bandamp;w ; ½ in. 1 reel (90 min.) : opt sd., bandamp;w ; 16 mm. Print Organization Homepage Obtaining Materials from the Organization Other services for the Public Visit the Organization Public Service Contact: Reference Librarian: [email protected] Owning Organization: UCLA Film and Television Archive

The MIC Approach: 

The MIC Approach PROBLEM: Many repositories lack the infrastructure to catalog effectively


Cataloging Utility A front-end input form that allows a participating organization to: Create a record directly in a core format Feed that record into the mapping utility and the export utility Export the record to the home organizations database In collaboration with the ViDe and RUL, provide a downloadable database in an open-source or low-cost RDBMS that supports both Dublin Core and MPEG-7, for use by current and potential MIC participants. Database Developer: Yang Yu, RUL

The MIC Approach: 

The MIC Approach PROBLEM: Many smaller repositories lack a web presence

The MIC Approach: 

The MIC Approach PROBLEM: Different users have different needs Create searching portals: General public Archivists (Preservation, Cataloging, Programming, etc.) NSDL ('Science Goes to the Movies')

The MIC interface

The MIC Approach: 

The MIC Approach PROBLEM: Moving Image use and understanding varies by audience

Education & Outreach Examples: 

Education andamp; Outreach Examples Moving Image Professionals Cataloging Preservation / preservation mentoring Locate preservation service providers Choosing MAM/catalog system General Public Rights – what restrictions are there and why How to donate your collection How do I obtain rights to use or display a moving image? Care and feeding of your personal collection 'Remembrance wall' - Films that have disappeared
