Cross-Library Learning And Knowledge Sharing—Metadata Community Of Practice At Notre Dame (OCLC)
Metadata. It permeates library work and services. It can mean different things to different people, and it may not be clear to everyone in an organization how their work is affected by metadata. It is often managed in silos, according to different traditions, schemas, and approaches, and the jargon used in the field can be a barrier to entry. However, when understood and coordinated across library units, metadata is undeniably powerful. How can library staff work together across organizational boundaries to establish common ground to maximize this valuable asset? In this webinar, the presenters will share lessons learned from developing and sustaining a cross-organizational Metadata Community of Practice (MCoP) at Hesburgh Libraries from September 2020 to February 2022.
