DC 2014 - Metadata Intersections : Bridging the Archipelago of Cultural Memory

Du 8 au 11 octobre 2014 - Austin, États-Unis

Publié le 30 juillet 2014, par Thérèse Hameau

Metadata is fundamental in enabling ubiquitous access to cultural and scientific resources through galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM). While fundamental, GLAM traditions in documentation and organization lead to significant differences in both their languages of description and domain practices. And yet, the push is on for "radically open cultural heritage data"* that bridges these differences as well as those across the humanities and the natural sciences. DC-2014 will explore the role of metadata in spanning the archipelago of siloed cultural memory in an emerging context of linked access to data repositories as well as repositories of cultural artifacts.

Beyond the conference theme, papers, reports, and poster submissions are welcome on a wide range of metadata topics, such as :

  • Metadata principles, guidelines, and best practices
  • Metadata quality (methods, tools, and practices)
  • Conceptual models and frameworks (e.g., RDF, DCAM, OAIS)
  • Application profiles
  • Metadata generation (methods, tools, and practices)
  • Metadata interoperability across domains, languages, time, structures, and scales
  • Cross-domain metadata uses (e.g., recordkeeping, preservation, curation, institutional repositories, publishing)
  • Domain metadata (e.g., for corporations, cultural memory institutions, education, government, and scientific fields)
  • Bibliographic standards (e.g., RDA, FRBR, subject headings) as Semantic Web vocabularies
  • Accessibility metadata
  • Metadata for scientific data, e-Science and grid applications
