The Evolving Roots of Discovery: New Models of Metadata Creation, Collection, and Reuse.

In today’s complex world of discovery, metadata lies at the heart of an ever-expanding pool of information. Whether it is encoded in MARC or BIBFRAME, created by human or machine, metadata allows for the efficient and comprehensive searching of multiple data sources. The Panel will explore three key aspects of today’s metadata environment: the use of transformer-based models for the creation of metadata, the collection of metadata into open repositories (Platform for Open Data, or POD), and the shift to truly shared source metadata through the use of BIBFRAME (Project BlueCore). These three transformative approaches to the metadata ecosystem will allow for a deeper and richer understanding of collections within the research library.
