Innovating with Metadata

Today’s metadata is not yesterday's cataloging. Libraries all over the world are doing amazing things with all kinds of metadata from many sources.

Is your library innovating with metadata? Then, we want to hear from you! Consider sharing your story in a 45-minute session during our November 9 online conference, Innovating with Metadata. We are interested in presenters from public, academic, and special libraries.

Possible topics include:

  • New metadata standards and application profiles
  • Transforming and exchanging metadata within and between organizations
  • Automated ways of generating discovery, preservation and technical metadata
  • New systems; innovative uses of institutional repositories, image management systems, discovery layers
  • Creative uses of linked data and RDF
  • Transitioning from MARC to BIBFRAME
  • Innovating with metadata on a shoe-string budget

Each session will be 45 minutes in length. If you're interested in presenting, but have never done it online, don't worry -- we will teach you what you need to know! We welcome submissions from staff in academic, public and special libraries who work with metadata.

To submit your presentation idea(s), use our call for proposal form: https://www.amigos.org/node/4639 by August 31st.

If you are interested in attending, save the date! We will be posting registration information in Early October.
