Call for Papers: Special Issue on Metadata Best Practices:  Journal of 
Library Metadata

Overview: The general aim of this special issue of the Journal of Library 
Metadata is to assess and present the current practices and trends in the 
creation and implementation of metadata best practices (metadata 
guidelines, application profiles) for digital and institutional 
repositories. The guest co-editor(s) seeks to outline the major issues, 
challenges, applications and tools, and future perspectives/approaches 
vis-à-vis the metadata best practices, guidelines, and documentation 
practices for resource description of local libraries and institutions. 

 Topics: Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the 
following: 

- Documentation practices 
- Creation and implementation of local best practices
- Best practices for metadata creation and quality control
- Metadata best practices for building cross-institutional repositories 
- Best practices in relation to metadata standards and resource types
- Integration of best practices with metadata generation applications and 
tools
- Approaches/techniques for extracting and analyzing best practices
- Semantics of metadata best practices (e.g., terminology-metadata field 
names/labels, definitions, data input guides) 
- Emergent metadata semantics (e.g., local additions and variants to 
metadata standards)
- Best practices for sharable and interoperable metadata
- Approaches/techniques for converting best practices into 
machine-processible formats; formalization of metadata best practices
- Data fields/structure, format and content/value of metadata best 
practices
- Data dictionary, metadata registry

Submission Procedure: Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit 
on or before, Nov 30, 2008, a proposal (up to 1000 words) clearly

submitted by March 30, 2009. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed on 
a double-blind review basis.

Information Science and Technology, Drexel University. Inquiries and

“The Journal of Library Metadata--retitled from the Journal of Internet 
Cataloging to reflect a wider focus--is the exclusive forum for the latest 
research, innovations, news, and expert views about all aspects of 
metadata applications in libraries and about the role of metadata in 
information retrieval. This focused journal comprehensively discusses 
practical, applicable information that libraries can effectively use in 
their own information discovery environments. Specialized knowledge, the 
latest technology, and top research are presented pertaining specifically 
to evolving metadata use in libraries.” More information about Journal of 
Library Metadata can be found online:
