Presentation Description:

Metadata Matters: The Commoditization of Metadata and Possible Futures for Resource Management and Resource Sharing. At their core, all functions of libraries depend upon ready access to accurate, robust, and flexible metadata. Libraries depend upon this metadata in order to fulfill their various missions as educational, non-profit members of the communities they serve. Libraries and library professionals create metadata which may then be shared with other libraries, most often with other organizations and systems serving as intermediaries to facilitate this work. However, organizations working in the library ecosystem have commoditized metadata, limiting the ability of libraries to access, share, adapt, and re-use metadata in fulfillment of their work. The future of libraries is intertwined with the future of metadata. This session will present an overview of the current state of metadata as a commodity, along with a discussion of possible futures pathways for the work of libraries in resource management and resource sharing.
