Banner: Canadian Metadata Forum 2005 - Metadata: A Reality Check

About the Forum

Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce the Canadian Metadata Forum 2005 - a two day event designed for key decision-makers and leaders in the field of information resource management. The Forum will be held September 27 and 28, 2005 at 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, Canada. The theme of this year's Forum is Metadata: A Reality Check.

The Canadian Metadata Forum 2005 will build on the foundation of the first forum held in September 2003 to address the challenges of metadata implementation, namely: how to realize the investment in metadata and how to influence metadata policy where it matters most: organizations and search engines.

Metadata continues to gain recognition as THE tool to resource discovery and information management, not only for Web information products but for information in all formats. However, basic questions remain unanswered.

  • Is metadata living up to expectations?
  • Are users finding more of what they want in metadata-enabled searches?
  • How can we leverage standards and technology convergences to improve metadata performance?
  • What might the alternatives to metadata be?

Experts from the Canadian metadata community, both government (federal and provincial) and non-government, including libraries, archives, museums, educational and research institutions, academia, multimedia producers and other experts will gather in Ottawa to discuss these important questions.

You are invited to be part of this groundbreaking discussion. The Canadian Metadata Forum 2005 is pleased to offer sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities. By participating in the Forum you allow it to be recognized as a strong supporter of the metadata community.
