Join NISO for our November webinar Data, Data Everywhere featuring Migration and System Population Practices.
November 11, 2009
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)
About the Webinar:
The scope and scale of metadata repositories continues to grow, with increasingly heterogeneous data and complexity both on the ingest side (e.g., bibliographic metadata) and in inter- and intra-organizational exchange of usage, patron, purchase, and accounting data. While data format and exchange standards are a given, how do policies, implementations, and standards interact? What are some examples of effective alignment of standards, policies and implementation, and what challenges remain?
Data quality, policy, and large-scale data flows How do regional consortia establish and implement policies to allow them to cope with increasing amounts of data in a widening variety of formats?
— Hilary Newman, Vice President of Implementation Services, Innovative Interfaces, Inc.
Academic library perspective Individual research libraries provide local, customized services for their audiences that are based upon large quantities of data — hopefully of high quality and supported by easy-to-use tools and processes provided by vendors and consortia. What are the successes, stress points, and failures from the perspective of the academic library?
— Maribeth Manoff, Coordinator for Networked Service Integration, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
— Robert McDonald, Associate Dean for Library Technologies, Indiana University
