Better metadata makes a difference
In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly put forth 17 goals to “transform our world”. These goals aim to tackle the big, important problems facing society. Scholarly research is critical to ensuring our collective response is timely and enduring.
**Open metadata** is the foundational infrastructure that fuels innovation and ensures that research is available, relevant, and used by everyone who needs it. **Connected metadata** bridges the gaps between systems and communities. **Reusable, open metadata** eliminates duplication of effort. Everyone suffers when we settle for inadequate metadata.
Help us improve the quality of metadata for research. Metadata 2020 is a collaboration that advocates richer, connected, and reusable, open metadata for all research outputs, which will advance scholarly pursuits for the benefit of society.
In this session, participate in several metadata activities and provide feedback that will help us to evolve them to be exciting and engaging to the broadest possible audience.
