Better Metadata: How Metadata 2020 is working to help organizations invest in the connections between research

All pre-conference workshops required separate registration. That registration process is now CLOSED and this workshop is full.  

We will engage attendees with a discussion surrounding existing metadata evaluation tools and guidance; and imagine improvements and/or new processes. Together we will reimagine an ideal evaluation workflow for multiple communities, the results from which will incentivize metadata improvements needed to accelerate research discovery. How can we effectively connect mappings between metadata recommendations and elements to metadata evaluation tools and guidance? We will use our previously collected community recommendations and metadata collections as input and show our results.

We will present Metadata 2020's progress to date on gathering use cases and business information to clearly demonstrate these principles; and bring attendees on board to discuss how to maximize engagement with these messages throughout the scholarly communications community. We aim to work directly with participants as metadata evangelists, inspiring them to spread the word to their own scholarly communications communities. This discussion will be communications-focused; ‘researcher communications’ surrounding metadata challenges; and also driven by demonstrating incentives for organizations (publishers; librarians; service, platform and tool providers; and data publishers and repositories) to improve metadata.

I am interested in all facets of metadata needed to discover, access, use, and understand data of any kind. Also evaluation and improvement of metadata collections, translation proofing. Ask me about the Metadata Game.
