MDG Conference 2022 : “Metadata and Discovery”

Conference

Proposals are invited for the CILIP Metadata and Discovery Group (MDG) biennial conference “Metadata and Discovery” to be held from 7th-9th September 2022 at IET Birmingham: Austin Court in Birmingham, England

Conference theme
With our mission to advocate for Metadata and Discovery firmly established this year’s conference aims to explore a wide range of advocacy initiatives to showcase current metadata impact across the information sector. The focus of the conference will be on revealing the everyday metadata activities that drive discovery in our information economy and the skills and competencies needed to carry out this work. The conference will explore all aspects of metadata advocacy from traditional cataloguing, to research data management and preservation and everything in between. We encourage submissions from information professionals, students and researchers, research data and open access specialists, data suppliers and standards and system developers on this theme and active audience participation.

Conference schedule
The main conference will take place over the first two full days. We are pleased to announce that, on the third day of the conference we will again be hosting the CILIP/BL Committee on RDA. Visits to libraries may be arranged for the Tuesday preceding the conference.

Conference topics

MDG welcomes proposals that cover, but are not confined to, the following areas:

  • Cataloguing/classification/indexing in any medium
  • Standards: creation and adoption
  • Controlled vocabularies
  • Authority control
  • Ethics
  • Data management
  • Library and Collection Management systems
  • Discovery systems and interfaces
  • Linked data
  • Search engine visibility
  • Digitization
  • Repositories
  • Knowledge bases
  • Education and careers
  • Metadata outside the library

Proposals closely reflecting the main conference theme will be especially valued.
