UPDATED and REPLACED with new file June 2014
Simplified presentation on library metadata evolution, the perils of not curating the metadata properly, and how it's being used "in the wild".
But…it’s all on the internet and a keyword search will find it, right? Not exactly... There's been a massive change in cataloging in libraries with the rise of the internet. Everything is connected, including our metadata. Catalogers are no longer isolated, and metadata management is no longer just an internal process. Everything we do now links to the wider world of metadata, pushing libraries into re-purposing our long-held work into the new frontiers of identity management and linked data.
