Join the ALCTS Metadata Interest Group in Chicago for our meeting at ALA Annual 2017 at McComick Place, Room W102A, 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM. We will have a presentation by the ALCTS/LITA Metadata Standards Committee on evaluating metadata standards, followed by our business meeting and election. Please join us!
Evaluating Metadata Standards – Principles into Practice
Jenn Riley, Lauren Corbett, and Erik Mitchell will present on their work in the Metadata Standards Committee in applying the principles (http://metaware.buzz/2016/08/04/principles-for-evaluating-metadata-standards/) to an example standard (the NISO Sample Tag Suite). The principles for evaluation were developed in 2016 to give metadata communities a common tool to explore standards design. The team will discuss the process for identifying standards to evaluate and approach to reviewing standards as well as the outcomes, lessons learned and next steps for the metadata principles.
