DGPHE-IG Issue Share Call-In on metadata -- plus homework!

07 Oct 2014

DPHE-IG will host an “Issue Share” on metadata models and practices on Tuesday, October 14, at 1 p.m. EDT (12 p.m. Central, 11 a.m. Mountain, 10 a.m. Pacific; 6 p.m. Europe).  Details for the GoToMeeting call in are listed at the end of this message.

We will be joined by Rebecca Koskela  (and perhaps others) of RDA’s Metadata Interest Group for this discussion.

Our overall objective is to continue developing the Metadata Standards and Use Cases (https://www.rd-alliance.org/group/digital-practices-history-and-ethnography-ig/wiki/wg-metadata-standards-artifact-types-and). We would appreciate it if you could spend a half-hour or so contributing artifact types and their attendant practices to this document in advance of the Oct. 13 GoTo Meeting.  Any additional metadat thoughts or notes on a more conceptual level that you would like to share can be pasted in here: https://rd-alliance.org/group/digital-practices-history-and-ethnography-ig/wiki/conceptualizing-metadata-user-created-data

To help you with those contributions and our discussion next Tuesday, we have uploaded a number of documents to our RDA File Depot for some background reading on metadata:

DASISH Roadmap for Preservation and Curation https://www.rd-alliance.org/filedepot?fid=589

Irish Qualitative Data Archive (IQDA) Best Practices https://www.rd-alliance.org/filedepot?fid=587

Discovery programme of JISC -- lessons on metadata https://www.rd-alliance.org/filedepot?fid=584

Somewhat longer but well worth skimming if you can, are:

Lisa Cliggett, “Qualitative Data Archiving in the Digital Age” https://www.rd-alliance.org/filedepot?fid=586

Anne Gilliland, “Reflections on the Value of Metadata Archaeology for Record Keeping in a Global, Digitized World” https://www.rd-alliance.org/filedepot?fid=585

We have also added a wiki page of relevant links that are well worth scanning if you have the time and inclination: https://www.rd-alliance.org/group/digital-practices-history-and-ethnography-ig/wiki/links-and-resources.html  If you know of other articles or resources to add to this wiki, please do. 

And don't forget our earlier request to add to the wikis of potential issue shares, project shares, and speakers for a “digital humanities” panel in conjunction with RDA Plenary 5.

We look forward to talking on Tuesday!
