Metadata for impact

📥  Digital Curation Centre, Presentations

Alex Ball will be speaking at the 3rd EUDAT Conference as part of a session on the topic 'B2FIND and Quality of Metadata'.

The session will discuss metadata quality in the context of data discovery services like EUDAT's B2FIND service. In his talk, 'Metadata for Impact: Lessons from the UK', Alex will contribute the experience of the Jisc Research Data and Discovery Service. In particular, he will look at how quality was measured in Phase 1 of the project and the challenges of harmonizing discovery metadata from a variety of different source. He will also outline a preliminary set of recommendations concerning what discovery metadata contributing repositories should provide.

The 3rd EUDAT Conference is co-located with the Research Data Alliance 4th Plenary, and takes place on 24–25 September at the De Meervaart Conference Centre, Amsterdam.
