Event Toward Semantic Metadata Aggregation for DPLA and Beyond

by Daniel Lovins on Fri, Jun 17, 2016 at 08:35 am

What happens when metadata that were created for a specific library catalog are aggregated and repurposed for a network-scale discovery environment like DPLA? What kinds of data modeling, mapping, remediation, and reconciliation are needed in advance of such aggregation?  What happens when metadata from different domains (e.g., galleries, libraries, archives, museums), created with different standards and schemas are forced to interoperate semantically?

What happens when metadata that were created for a specific library catalog are aggregated and repurposed for a network-scale discovery environment like DPLA? What kinds of data modeling, mapping, remediation, and reconciliation are needed in advance of such aggregation?  What happens when metadata from different domains (e.g., galleries, libraries, archives, museums), created with different standards and schemas are forced to interoperate semantically? These are some of the questions will be investigating at the Heads of Cataloging/Metadata Services Interest Group meeting at ALA Annual. Our panelists will be Josh Hadro, Deputy Director of NYPL Labs and Jason Roy, Director of Digital Library Services at the Minnesota Digital Library. Please mark your calendars and join us on Monday, June 27, 8:30-10 am.
