The ALCTS Metadata Interest Group seeks proposals for presentations for the program “Metadata and Indicators for Open Access” at the ALA Annual Meeting 2014 in Las Vegas, NV. This program is scheduled on Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Presentations are 30 minutes in total -- 20 minutes for the presentation, 10 minutes for questions.

Presenters may discuss:

-          use of existing or new vocabularies, schema, and other projects, such as Crossmark, JISC/UKOLN's Vocabularies for OA, and ONIX-PL in library systems

-          use of OA vocabularies and schema for faculty consultation and education related to scholarly communication, author’s rights, and open access

-          studies of OA indicator use and successes/failures

All presentations at ALA Annual Las Vegas 2014 will be recorded. Speaker agreements will be forwarded to all speakers and will require consent for video recording.

The deadline for proposals is December 9, 2013.  Proposals may be submitted through this form:
