Following up on a discussion at the January meeting of the MAGIRT/CaMMS Cartographic Resources Cataloging Interest Group (prompted by Louise Ratliff at UCLA), I am writing in search of:
At our discussion in January, we agreed that being able to compare existing local documentation, and existing records, would be a great place to start for the purpose of beginning a process whereby, in Louise's words, our community can develop "best practices for metadata for geospatial data, no matter where it is described, …[and] come up with some standards for what is 'core' when describing these things," and that ALA Connect would be a good place to pull it all together. Accordingly, I would like to gather and share your contributions in the library of the interest group's ALA Connect space (unless you instruct me otherwise! If you prefer, I would also be happy to condense and summarize formal documentation for public display in ALA Connect).
Many thanks for your assistance!
