ALCTS' Metadata Interest Group seeks proposals for presentations for a data management program at the ALA Annual Meeting 2012 in Anaheim, CA.
This program will delve into various aspects of data management and its implications for libraries. We are seeking implementation examples of:
What types of data management services will be provided to the academic institution as a whole?
How much responsibility do libraries have?
What role will metadata librarians and metadata take?
What are the digital preservation issues?
What role will IT take in relation to libraries concerning data management?
Proposal ideas could include:
Data management plans
Development of data management teams
Data management standards and guidelines development for researchers
Examples of metadata manipulation, schema, and management for datasets
Examples of digital preservation
