DC 2014: International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications

Metadata Intersections: Bridging the Archipelago of Cultural Memory

8 11 October 2014

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Metadata is fundamental in enabling ubiquitous access to cultural and scientific resources through galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM). While fundamental, GLAM traditions in documentation and organization lead to significant differences in both their languages of description and domain practices. And yet, the push is on for "radically open cultural heritage data"* that bridges these differences as well as those across the humanities and the natural sciences. DC-2014 will explore the role of metadata in spanning the archipelago of siloed cultural memory in an emerging context of linked access to data repositories as well as repositories of cultural artifacts.
