DICE Group Lecture

Drs. Reagan Moore and Richard Marciano, Professors at the School of Information and Library Science, UNC Chapel Hill, and members of the Data Intensive Cyber Environments (DICE) research group, will be giving a lecture entitled, “Policy-driven metadata for distributed collections,” on November 24, 2008.

The lecture, which is open to the public and hosted by the Metadata Research Center, will be in room 205 in the Undergraduate Library, UNC Chapel Hill, from 11am – 12:15pm. Coffee and pastries will be available 10:30 – 11:00 am.

Topics covered by the presentation will include:

  • Identification of metadata required to organize distributed data into a shared collection for use in a digital library or preservation environment.
  • Identification of management policies that are needed to make assertions about collection properties. This immediately raises the question whether metadata mandates are driven by the set of management policies, or whether management policies are driven by metadata mandates.
  • Demonstration of applications of policy-driven metadata mandates. We will demonstrate generalization of NARA metadata hierarchy.
