The next meeting of the Metadata Discussion Group will be on May Day, Tuesday, May 1st. Library staff, SLIS faculty and students, and those on campus interested in the topic are welcome to attend.
May Day: the springtime festival of renewal and revitalization. Mayday: the distress signal used by vessels or persons in imminent danger. When considering the future of LAMs data, in particular linked data, there is considerable hope and excitement—and fear and despair. Come and work through your metadata exhalations and/or trepidations with us at our final meeting for the 2011-2012 academic year!
