Palmer, Carole L.; Renear, Allen H.; Cragin, Melissa H. (2008-12-02)It has been suggested that digital libraries are more like archives than libraries and that library science cannot provide a theoretical foundation for handling digital data. We assert, however, that library and information ...
Renear, Allen H.; Mylonas, Elli; Durand, David (Oxford University Press, 1993)We examine the claim that "text is an ordered hierarchy of content objects"; this thesis was affirmed by the authors, and others, in the late 1980s and has been associated with certain approaches to text processing and the ...
Renear, Allen H.; Wickett, Karen M.; Urban, Richard J.; Dubin, David (ACM, 2008-06-17)Formalizing collection-level/item-level metadata relationships encounters the problem of trivial satisfaction. We offer a solution related to current work in IR and ontology evaluation.
Wickett, Karen M.; Urban, Richard J.; Renear, Allen H. (2010-10-25)Slides from a presentation at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Information Science and Technology.
Wickett, Karen M.; Renear, Allen H.; Urban, Richard J. (2010-10-25)Collections of artifacts, images, texts, and other cultural objects are not arbitrary aggregations, but are designed to support specific research and scholarly activities. Collection-level metadata directly supports this ...
Garcia-Murillo, Martha; Weiss, Martin; Renear, Allen H. (2010-02-03)This roundtable will allow academics in information schools the opportunity to share their experiences on theory development, the tools and techniques that they have used to facilitate this theorizing process and the ...
Standard Domain Ontologies: The Rate Limiting Step for the Next Big Change in Scientific Communication Renear, Allen H. (2007-04-27)The long awaited emergence of high-function scientific publishing may, finally, be near. There will soon be the tools, structured data, and communication infrastructure that will allow researchers to use new and innovative ...
Renear, Allen H.; Urban, Richard J.; Wickett, Karen M.; Palmer, Carole L.; Dubin, David (2008-06)Many aspects of managing collection/item metadata relationships are critical to sustaining collection value over time. Metadata at the collection-level not only provides context for finding, understanding, and using the ...

Urban, Richard J.; Wickett, Karen M.; Renear, Allen H. (2010-07-29)This paper describes the development of a testbed for formalized categories of collection-item metadata relationships. Because these categories are characterized using logic-based formal languages and are most naturally ...
Renear, Allen H.; Dubin, David (The American Society for Information Science & Technology, 2007)We examine the conceptual model of the “bibliographic universe” presented in IFLA’s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) and argue, applying ontology design recommendations proposed by N. Guarino and ...
Renear, Allen H.; Dolan, Molly; Trainor, Kevin; Cragin, Melissa H. (ASIS&T, 2009-11-11)Originally focused on scientific data, the data curation community is now taking up the curation problems of humanities data as well. Sharing concepts and terminology across these domains should be valuable for both the ...

Renear, Allen H.; Dubin, David (University of Washington, 2003-10)By "identity conditions" we mean a method for determining whether an object x and an object y are the same object. Identity conditions are arguably an essential feature of any rigorously developed conceptual framework for ...
Floyd, Ingbert R.; Renear, Allen H. (The American Society for Information Science & Technology, 2007-10)IFLA’s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) is a model of the bibliographic universe. Although initially its application to the digital world appears to be straightforward, upon closer examination puzzles ...
Renear, Allen H.; Dubin, David; Wickett, Karen M. (ASIST, Wiley, 2008)Formal accounts of digital objects often characterize them as bit strings, graphs, sets, tuples, relations, or other similar constructs from discrete mathematics. Such characterizations imply that these objects cannot ...
Renear, Allen H.; Phillippe, Christopher; Lawton, Pat; Dubin, David (IDEAlliance and Mulberry Technologies, Inc, 2003-08-04)The FRBR [Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records], released by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions in 1998, generalizes and refines current practices and theory in library ...
