Program Schedule

Image: Annual Meeting logo

The DCMI Annual Meeting is collocated with the International Conference on Dublin Core & Metadata Applications. The Annual provides the members of DCMI's governance and administrative Boards and Standing Committees with the opportunity to meet face-to-face once a year. While scheduled meetings of these bodies occur on Saturday, 11 October 2014 in Austin, informal meetings of the Boards and Standing Committees may occur during any available time during the Pre-Conference and Conference days (Wednesday through Friday).

Program Key:

Tutorials & Workshops: Pre-Conference sessions labeled "Tutorial" or "Workshop" are 1/2, 3/4 or full day sessions addressing specific topics and learning outcomes. Some are designated "hands-on" where they involve considerable aspects of direct application of principles and processes by participants (look for the hands-on icon)

Special Sessions: Conference sessions labeled "Special Session" are unique sessions addressing topics of special interest to the Dublin Core community. The format of Special Sessions varies and may include combinations of speaker/panel presentations, and discussion.

Peer Review Papers: Sessions labeled "Papers" are presentation sessions of peer reviewed submissions of interest to the Dublin Core community that break new ground in metadata theory or practice and Project Reports that present existing projects that demonstrate new solutions to existing metadata problems and/or illustrate metadata best practices.

Plenary Sessions: General sessions where all delegates to the conference gather.

High-speed wired and wireless Internet connectivity in all meeting rooms, plus wireless access in all lobbies and guest rooms.

Sessions identified with the "unconference/meetup" icon are intended for participant-driven meetings including special topics or issue discussions and last minute DCMI Community & Task Group meetups. In the weeks leading up to the conference, we'll provide an online means for suggesting unconference sessions. Sessions identified by the "hands on" icon have significant components where the participants can directly apply the knowledge and skills being covered. On occasion, such sessions require pre-meeting preparations such as background readings or preparation of your laptop through preloading applications or data. Listings of prerequisite preparations are available on the sessions page.

« Training the Trainers for Linked Data »

Linked Data has gained momentum, and practitioners are eager to use its principles to derive more value from metadata. Available handbooks and training materials focus on an audience with a computer science background. However, people with a non-technical education find it hard to understand what Linked Data can mean for them. This full-day, hands-on workshop will provide an overview of methods and case studies from the handbook "Linked Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums" (2014, ALA/Neal-Schuman). Using freely available tools and data, this workshop will teach you how to clean, reconcile, enrich, and publish your metadata. Participants will learn about concepts, methods, and tools that they can use on their own, or to teach others within their own institutions, to get more value from metadata.
