Requirements specification for the Metadata Standards Catalog

30 Jun 2016

Very soon we will begin the actual work of implementing the new Metadata Standards Catalog. Before we do that, we need to make absolutely sure what we want the Catalog to do.
Back in March and April, we asked you to give us user stories describing what how you might use the Catalog. Thank you very much if you contributed, we valued each and every one. We have looked through them all and on that basis we have come up with a requirements specification for the Catalog.
We would very much like to know your thoughts, especially whether you agree with the priorities we have assigned. We would also welcome your ideas for other requirements that perhaps we missed.
Please go to the specification document on Google Docs and leave some comments. We would like to finalize the document soon, so please contribute if you can by 2016-07-15.
Many thanks,
