Planning for the Evolving Role of Metadata Services
June 2–4, 2015. Three 90 minute sessions over three days
The ALCTS Metadata Interest Group invites you to join us for the ALCTS ALA Annual Virtual Preconference “Planning for the Evolving Role of Metadata Services.” The preconference will feature three days of exploring the expansion of metadata services, including:
Session 1: Metadata Services for Research Data Management (June 2)
Librarians continue to engage in active partnerships with researchers who seek assistance in describing and organizing their data to meet federal mandates and to promote the discoverability and preservation of their work. This session will examine different ways that librarians collaborate with researchers to manage metadata workflows for research data.
Research Data Support at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG): a Metadata Perspective
Presented by Anna Craft, Metadata Cataloger at UNCG
Using DDI Metadata to Support Research Data Management
Presented by Jared Lyle, Director of Curation Services, ICPSRMetadata Services for Research Data Management
Session 2: Assessing Metadata Staffing and Workflows (June 3)
Many metadata programs have moved beyond the beginning stages of developing workflows for digital library content. Planning for future development requires analyzing current costs and workflows. This program will discuss ways in which metadata creators and coordinators gather, assess, and report metrics in order to evaluate staffing and workflows.
Evolving Workflows for Metadata Ingest at The UC San Diego Library
Presented by Arwen Hutt, Metadata Librarian, UC San Diego
Integrating New Services into Existing Metadata Workflows
Presented by Nathan B. Putnam and Bria L. Parker, Metadata Services, University of Maryland
Session 3: Techniques and Technologies for Developing Local Controlled Vocabularies (June 4)
Best practices for managing local controlled vocabularies have grown rapidly in recent years with the development of standards such as the Encoded Archival Context-Corporate Bodies, Person and Families (EAC-CPF). These guidelines have influenced not only the development of special collections practices, but also metadata standards for localized controlled vocabularies. How should institutions handle these changes to stay up to date with new and emerging standards? This program will look at two cases studies from the University of Miami Libraries and the George Washington University Libraries that demonstrate technology and techniques for managing local controlled vocabularies and implementing EAC-CPF.
