Just a quick update to confirm that despite recent adverse weather conditions, the Metadata Forum meeting on metadata for complex objects is still happening in York on Friday 10/December. There’s been a slight change to the original speaker lineup, but due to illness not snow. We’re tough up north!!
The speakers will be -
Nick Sheppard, Repository Developer, (sometimes Repository Czar), Leeds Metropolitan University
Nick will be talking about his experiences developing a “blended”repository for research and Open Educational Resources at Leeds Metropolitan University.
Julie Allinson, Digital Library Manager for the Library & Archives, University of York
Julie will be talking about the work of the Digital Library at the University of York, and in particular their work with images.
Jodie Double, Digital Content and Repositories Manager, University of Leeds
Jodie will be talking about user generated catalogue records for audio and video vs. the perfect record that is sometimes attempted to be achieved.
