Call for comment, Principles for Evaluating Metadata Standards

The ALCTS/LITA Metadata Standards Committee invites the library, archives, and museums metadata communities to comment on the document, Principles for Evaluating Metadata Standards. This document is meant to assist in the development, maintenance, selection, use, and assessment of metadata standards. The current draft incorporates feedback given on an earlier version of the document.

The committee encourages written feedback through one of the following options: leave a comment on the Principles page[1] or fill out the comment form[2].

In addition, the Committee will be presenting at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Boston. There will be two opportunities for face-to-face discussion of this draft, one at the Metadata Interest Group meeting on Sunday, January 10, 2016 at 8:30 am EST, and one at the regular Metadata Standards Committee meeting on Sunday, January 10, 2016 at 1:00 pm EST. Registered conference attendees are welcome to attend.
