Metadata Discussion Group

Purpose of the Metadata Discussion Group

The Metadata Discussion Group meets monthly to discuss a current metadata topic. The group has no formal "membership" -- discussions are open to anyone from the Libraries, SLIS, or elsewhere on campus who is interested in the topic under discussion. Citations to resources related to the topic to be discussed will be distributed two weeks before each Metadata Discussion Group meeting. Comments, questions, or ideas for discussion topics or articles can be sent to Jennifer Liss, Metadata/ Cataloging Librarian.
