The Metadata Interest Group would like to invite you to join us in Chicago at ALA Annual. The group's program/meeting will take place on June 30, 2013 in the McCormick Place Convention Center room N137 from 8:30am - 10:00am.
Erik Mitchell will start the program with "Library Linked Data: Research and Adoption" where he will present the results of a content-analysis study of metadata services within LOD systems being developed or in use in LAM settings. He will focus on highlights of the findings; give participants a tour of a collection of data and tools that can be used for independent exploration of LOD metadata, and point participants to other resources for continued study.
A business meeting will follow the program, during which elections for 2013-2014 officers will be held.
The following offices are open for election:
Vice Chair/Chair Elect (who will serve as Chair 2014-2015)
Programming Co-Chair (2013-2015)
They will join the other officers: Maureen Walsh (chair), Ivey Glendon (program co-chair), and Jason Kovari (blog coordinator)
Anyone who is interested in standing for election to one of these offices is invited to get in touch with me at [log in to unmask]
