Metadata Standards and Applications

Metadata Standards and Applications: An ALCTS/Library of Congress Workshop. I'm so excited this is coming to Houston. I may be able to make it. The budget is very tight next year, there may be nothing for travel/training. I may still pay for it out of my pocket if there is no budget.
Cataloging : Metadata Standards and Applications: An ALCTS/Library of Congress Workshop

This two-day workshop presents 21st century bibliographic control concepts, including specific metadata standards and applications. The goal of the workshop is to relate what library staff already know about library catalog metadata to digital library metadata, thereby preparing staff to apply their current knowledge to new areas.

Topics covered will include:

  • An introduction to digital libraries
  • What is metadata?
  • Content 'storage' and retrieval models
  • Data creation and management models
  • Relationship models
  • An overview of metadata standards and applications, interoperability, vocabularies, application profiles, quality considerations, and monitoring metadata developments.
