CFP: Networked Resources and Metadata Interest Group (ALCTS), ALA Midwinter

CFP: Networked Resources and Metadata Interest Group (ALCTS), ALA Midwinter

The Networked Resources and Metadata Interest Group (an interest group of ALCTS, the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services) is planning to host a discussion at its meeting during the upcoming ALA Midwinter meeting in Seattle, and invites prospective speakers who would like to serve on a panel.

We will schedule approximately one hour for presentations plus 30 minutes for discussion, which will allow for two to four panel members. The specific topic has not yet been set, but presentations will focus on metadata in a broad context: digital collections (scholarly resources, education materials, etc.), project planning and management, descriptive metadata, user interface design, and other related aspects.

Meeting date and time:

Sunday, January 21, 2007

8:00-9:30 discussion

9:30-10:00 business meeting
