The Metadata Research Center participated in NASKO 2021 (North American Society for Knowledge Organization) from July 9-11, 2021.
Congratulations to Sam Grabus for her appointment as ISKO-C/US Program Officer. Congratulations also to Brian Dobreski and Vanessa Schlais for their appointments as President and Treasurer.
Drexel’s MRC had a good showing at NASKO, with two papers: “Modeling Ephraim Chambers’ Knowledge Structure from a Naïve Standpoint,” by Scott McClellan, Mat Kelly, and Jane Greenberg [Slides]; and “A Framework for Facilitating the Development of Data sharing and Use Agreements,” by Micaela Greene, Sam Grabus, and Jane Greenberg [Slides]. The papers will be published open access in the Proceedings from North American Symposium on Knowledge Organization.
Additionally, a shout out to all of the past and present LEADS and LEADING participants who attended NASKO: former LEADS Fellows Jessica Cheng, Laura Ridenour, and Chris Holstrom, current LEADING fellow L.P. Coladangelo, and LEADS/LEADING Project Manager Sam Grabus.
