2009 (W)
Description :

The meeting will include three presentations and be followed by a business meeting.

Ivey Glendon from the University of Virginia Library will present "We’ve gone MAD: launching a Metadata Analysis & Design unit at the University of Virginia Library"

At the University of Virginia Library, a library-wide re-organization of departments and services has provided the opportunity to evaluate activity focused on description and discovery of library materials, as well as metadata consultation services in the Library and University.
This presentation will focus on how the U.Va. Library has re-imagined metadata services functions to give rise to a new unit: Metadata Analysis & Design (MAD). MAD, one of three new metadata units in the Library, is staffed by five metadata specialists with diverse areas of interest from across the former organization. The creation of this unit has required significant training for staff (including workshops and bootcamps) to ensure a consistent level of understanding of both MARC and non-MARC metadata principles and practices, a multi-part “orientation to systems” focusing on metadata creation and design across systems (ILS, ArchivesSpace, Avalon, and various institutional repositories), and significant overlap with new Library units such as the new Digital Content Management & Dissemination unit. Though emergent, the new MAD unit has enabled metadata specialists to respond more holistically to requests for expertise from both colleagues inside the library and researchers within the University.

Lee Richardson from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Health Sciences Library will present "Using Metadata Skills for a Course Inventory"

Metadata and information organization activities in libraries often focus on digital projects, institutional repositories and library catalogs. This presentation will report on a project that applies skills developed from these traditional activities to something a little different. I will talk about a project to help the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Health Affairs schools create a system to gather and organize information about interprofessional education courses and learning activities. Previous experiences in evaluating taxonomies, applying controlled vocabularies, creating data dictionaries, and understanding when to select from valid data verses using free text all informed better discernment of possible problems and solutions. While this project is still in early stages of development, I will share what’s been done so far, mistakes made, lessons learned and what comes next.

Eric Hellman, founder of UnGlue.it, will present "Metadata for Project Gutenberg Using GitHub"

GITenberg is a distributed project working to improve Project Gutenberg texts using the online collaboration and version control tools at GitHub. We received a prototype grant from the Knight Foundation to work on improving the metadata in Project Gutenberg for use by libraries.
