Open Discovery: Collaborative Approaches to Metadata


How can openly sharing metadata help support collection management processes, reduce duplication of effort, and enhance visibility and use of collections? How can we make our data “work harder”? The speakers report on initiatives in the UK and USA aimed at helping archives openly share metadata and maximize the potential of its reuse and address the key technological issues as well as the more political challenges around engaging key stakeholders.
