OCLC er vært for projektet Sharing and Aggregating Social Metadata om deling på nettet. Det skal blive spændende at følge.
Beskrivelse af projektet:
One of the activities related to metadata management and support, this activity focused on the user contributions that would enrich the descriptive metadata created by libraries, archives, and museums. These contributions could come from curators, subject librarians, experts, or enthusiasts. The metadata contributed could be in a range of formats, including images, commentaries, reviews, tags, or links to related sources. To be truly effective, we need to share and aggregate contributions added by users in many diverse environments.
An RLG Partner working group identified the issues that need to be resolved to communicate and share user contributions on the network level. The working group reviewed dozens of social media sites and analyzing success metrics, content, policy, and vocabulary issues.
Der er kommet en enkelt rapport ud af projektet ind til videre: Social Metadata for Libraries, Archives, and Museums Part 1: Site Reviews, by Karen Smith-Yoshimura and Cyndi Shein.
