Metadata/Linked Data Group

Following a successful Metadata/linked data event in June 2019 a Metadata/Linked Data Technical Sub-Group was established. The group has met 4 times and has representation from 17 NC institutions. The group's vision is that “metadata is an institutional asset which needs to be fit for discovery today and in the future”. The groups remit is to advocate for consistent quality metadata available in the acquisition supply chain, help institutions stabilise their metadata practices for the future and share best practice to capitalise on developments relating to linked data. The impact of the group has been to provide a regional voice for metadata and tapping into the development of a community of metadata good practice ensuring metadata has a tangible voice. The Co-Chair of the group Kathryn Sullivan has written an article for the MDG Bulletin.
