Discussion at April 2 Metadata Discussion Group
The next Metadata Discussion Group meeting
will be on Tuesday, April 2
9:30am - 10:30am
in the Wells
Library, Room E174. The Metadata Discussion
Group meets monthly to discuss metadata issues
pertaining to libraries, archives, and
museums. The group has no formal
membership. Library staff, SLIS faculty and
students, and those on campus interested in the
topic are welcome to attend.
Shortly after the Library of Congress'
March 31 implementation date, we will discuss the
new cataloging standard, Resource Description
& Access (RDA), from a metadata perspective.
This discussion will not
focus on how to catalog with RDA, nor address
specific changes from AACR2 (watch the blog
for resources that address these
topics!). Instead, the goal of this meeting will
be to move beyond the micro details of the new
standard and to expand into the macro implications
that RDA has for the future of library data. How
is bibliographic data modeled differently in RDA?
What exactly does RDA promise to deliver? How
might RDA transform discovery?

other librarians, and share knowledge with those
who want to know more!

Application Deadline for the InULA Research
The InULA Research Incentive Fund is
intended to encourage and support research by
providing funding for research projects of any
size or scope. All applications will be considered
on their merits. In the case of equally
meritorious proposals, those of non-tenured
librarians may be given priority, because it is
often difficult for beginning researchers to
obtain research grants.
The guidelines, application, and other
information may be found at: http://www.indiana.edu/~inula/opportunities/index.html
Applications for InULA Research Incentive
funds to support research, professional
development, or service are due on Monday,
. Applications are reviewed
after the deadline by the InULA Grants and
Scholarship Committee and recommendations made to
the Executive Board for approval and funding.
Notice of awards is provided to the applicants as
soon as possible.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you
have any questions.
