UKSG Conference 2017 Breakout - KBART recommendations: challenges and achievements - Julie Zhu


Published on

This session will comprise a talk with a panel of speakers
looking at KBART: seven years later (since the publication
of the first set of recommendations up to today). The panel
will discuss the changes on the e-resources metadata
landscape, the benefits of KBART and the challenges of
its implementation. Today poor metadata in the electronic
resources supply chain is still a problem. The panel will
use practical examples to explain how metadata creation,
consumption and usage are marked by the constant
requirement of finding the balance between available
resources (technical and human) and end user discoverability
needs. The KBART Standing Committee sees the
implementation of KBART recommendations as a community
effort from a range of stakeholders (content providers,
knowledge bases, link resolvers and librarians).
