Evaluating Metadata Standards – Principles into Practice

Jenn Riley, Lauren Corbett, and Erik Mitchell will present on their work in the Metadata Standards Committee in applying the Principles for Evaluating Metadata Standards (http://metaware.buzz/2016/08/04/principles-for-evaluating-metadata-standards/) to an example standard (the NISO Sample Tag Suite). The principles for evaluation were developed in 2016 to give metadata communities a common tool to explore standards design. The team will discuss the process for identifying standards to evaluate and approach to reviewing standards as well as the outcomes, lessons learned and next steps for the metadata principles.
