Cataloging of materials is not the workflow that it was fifty years ago. The skill sets and tasks associated with application of metadata in the 21st century demand new techniques and tools. What might this entail? Ought there to be different elements included in the metadata? Should there be more application of automated processes? What opportunities for value-add are there for service and content providers? How might these changes improve the success of the user experience? This session will explore the possibilities of revisiting cataloging activities with an eye to enhanced efficiency and effectiveness. A cross-section of views from multiple stakeholders will form the substance of this event. This event will be a roundtable discussion by stakeholders actively engaging with these questions and concerns.
