The CUL Metadata Working Group is an open forum for all staff to discuss and collaborate on metadata issues facing the library. The CUL Metadata Working Group Charge is:

  • To exchange information about metadata and its application to all library functions; this exchange will include information about uses of metadata in CUL as well as information about broader metadata developments nationally and internationally.
  • To provide an opportunity for feedback on the potential and the impact of intended developments or uses of metadata in CUL.
  • To make recommendations on policy decisions relating to metadata that need to be made by CUL.

Please join us for a 2 hour hands-on look at existing linked data sets. We often discuss linked data as a silver bullet for our metadata strategies, but we stop short of linked data native implementations because adequate tools are not available, decisions about which model to use are highly political, etc. Ignoring orthodoxy, politics, and the all-or-nothing mindset,…

Find here a list of Metadata Working Group dates for the 2017-2018 year for planning purposes. This year, we're keeping the approach we started last year. This means workshops, working sessions, and we hope, deliverables from the Metadata Working Group in this academic year. So many of these meetings will be used for workshops or working session style events. We'll start the year with a lightening session of the tools people are using to work with their metadata across CUL.…
