- MetaDoor: The Need for an Open Metadata Platform - June 22 - 2:00pm EDT
There is a strong correlation between good metadata and the ability of library users to find the materials they need. Much effort has been invested by the community to find the right technology to create metadata records in an effective way. Currently this task is costly and resource intensive. This session will review a new metadata platform from Ex Libris that is planned as free, open, and community-based. Called MetaDoor, it will provide high-quality bibliographic records in an efficient way and will support both existing and next-gen formats. Attend this session to learn about the collaborative, efficient, and modern experience this revolutionary, metadata-sharing platform can provide to libraries.
