Description
Over the past decade, Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems have been widely implemented with large amounts of detailed longitudinal patient information, including lab tests, medications, disease status, and treatment outcomes, have consequently been accumulated and made electronically available. These large clinical databases are valuable data sources for enabling learning healthcare systems, i.e., generating real-world evidence from practice to advance medicine and improve healthcare. Data standardization, which aims to adopt HIT Standards to foster better syntactic and semantics interoperability, plays significant roles in enabling learning healthcare systems. In this talk, I will introduce the history of medical records, digital transformations, and HIT Standards. I will then discuss various efforts in data standardization including natural language processing to generate computable clinical data for clinical research and practice.

Description
In this session panelists will present their ideas about how to compare classifications 1) where there are multiple editions over time, and 2) where there are various schemes covering the same domain. Then they will discuss whether there are universal characteristics for comparison of classifications, for example, how the concepts are arranged and described.

Description
This panel will present the life cycle of the production of statistical data, from its definition to the metadata that support, among other things, its management, FAIR use, interoperability, and integration. A number of metadata standards will be examined, including the Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX) standard, and illustrated with case studies.

Description
This panel is intended to discuss metadata for visual artworks such as Manga/Comics, Video Games, and Animations (Anime). These visual artworks have significantly different natures from those cultural objects collected by memory institutions, e.g., paintings, sculptures, books, and so forth. Some simple questions, for example, are "are video games a tangible object or an interactive visual function?", “How can we link Manga, Anime, and Games that are created as a multimedia franchise? "is user experience an important metadata to characterize video games?" and so forth. Therefore, we need to know what features need to be described by metadata and how we can use the descriptions in the networked information environment.

Description
Small and medium-sized libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) around the world do not often have access to metadata resources or specialists. To create an easy to access, open standard for metadata that can be utilized by small and medium-sized LAMs, this panel brings together experts from around the world to formulate a robust, flexible metadata standard that can sustain local archives by enabling them to more easily describe, administer, preserve, and utilize their resources, as well as share them with the global community. The panel is envisioned as a workshop session where speakers will present their arguments for how best to support local archives. They will then, with feedback from each other and the audience, attempt to draft an open standard for metadata that can be utilized by small and medium-sized LAMs. Organizers envision including a description of the new open standard in a book project tentatively titled Paying our Debts to Memory: Sustaining Local Archives for the Global Community.

Description

The Library of Congress, the National Library of Sweden and the Share-VDE library-driven initiative will report about their developments and experiences for bringing BIBFRAME into practice in library environments and in connected linked data management systems and entity discoveries.

The involved topics will encompass the BIBFRAME data model and its applications, including processes and tools for original cataloguing in linked data.

Other broader aspects of linked data management will be discussed in connection with the use of the provenance, for example: tracking changes in different versions on triple level by comparison algorithms; its role in retaining the relationships between Instance entities and the original data that contributed to their creation; its ability to control how the various services of the entity-based systems consume the data; the customization of linked data discoveries in dedicated skin portals based on the provenance of the data.

Related to that, the impact on the data exchange processes and on the interoperability among libraries and with linked data management systems will be considered in the discussion, along with the applications for entity editing and new generation authority control in cooperative environments. The ability to operate on clusters of linked data entities and push edits to the connected discovery portal not only will serve the change management, but will also enable an innovative method for data quality and authority checks from a controlled source.

Description
The challenge of FAIR data sharing – ubiquitous, automated reuse of data and metadata – is particularly acute across domain and infrastructure boundaries, demanding a change in how data are described. One major development in this area is the idea of a FAIR Digital Object Framework (FDOF), where information - both data and metadata - of interest for the discovery and reuse of data can be identified and obtained. This session presents the requirements which lead us to a middle tier of domain-agnostic standards in support of the FDOF, and proposes some candidates for consideration based on implementations and explorations to date. Some examples of such standards are provided, showing how they can work together to provide the complete information set needed to reuse data in a FAIR data-sharing scenario across domain and institutional boundaries. The focus of the session is on the "interoperability" and "reuse" elements of FAIR, but the session will touch on all aspects of FAIR data sharing, and how it might practically be realized. In particular, we aim to present these ideas to the DCMI community, to get feedback and to understand how this approach may intersect with current activities and thinking in the DCMI community and with related initiatives.

Description
The Core Cultural Metadata Model interest group (CCMM-ig) was proposed to develop a core model which help understand organization of metadata to describe various types of cultural entities and digital archiving of those entities in the networked information environment, including tangible and intangible entities, perpetual and ephemeral entities, digital and non-digital entities, etc. The CCMM group was inspired by the significant developments of digital archiving of cultural entities supported by Linked Open Data (LOD) resources, e.g., Europeana.

Description
Metadata as the vehicle for representing resources of all kinds, digital or otherwise, has evolved from record-centric style to networks or graphs that are supported by entities and their semantic relations. The record-centric style metadata focuses on information objects in which entities are represented by strings of text. This tradition is being challenged by newer concepts and techniques that are becoming reality of metadata research and development. Ontologies, linked data, entity management, and knowledge graphs have been applied in many domains that use metadata to represent resources. These developments are exciting and have promises to make metadata more intelligent, efficient, and interoperable. Yet, they also bring questions for the metadata community to explore and address: What implications does the transition from record-based metadata to knowledge networks/graphs have for legacy bibliographic metadata? How will the metadata-deduced knowledge graphs impact the current and future resource representation and discovery? How can knowledge graph techniques be applied to domain resource representation to facilitate efficient discovery? This panel invited experts from research, industry, and academia sectors to provide insights into these questions.

Description
As data stewardship has evolved and stabilized in libraries and repositories, knowledge organization expertise has been foundational in the management, curation, archiving, and reuse of data resources. Now, new trends in data services and the academic research enterprise are intensifying the importance and complexity of knowledge organization for data stewardship and data infrastructures. We will examine the metadata challenges associated with the growing expectations for responsible and ethical data services, including the imperative for “contextual integrity” in the curation of sensitive qualitative data and the governance of Indigenous data. We will also consider the knowledge structures implicated in the turn toward convergence research that is spurring significant investment in interdisciplinary discovery and innovation. I conclude by arguing that these trends suggest unique and necessary directions for knowledge organization education and the professional data workforce.

Description
An application profile defines metadata usage for a specific application or usage. Profiles are often created as texts that are intended for a human audience and these texts generally employ tables to list the elements of the profile and related rules for metadata creation and validation. There has not been, however, to date a machine-actionable format for profiles. The DCTAP combines the need for human-readability and machine-actionability: it is a simple table format (with underlying comma separated values) with 12 elements that provide a core description of an application profile.
