Metadata still a mystery? Sit in on this one-hour primer and take a fresh look at (or refresher on) the basics.

Welcome and opening remarks
Ian E. Wilson, Librarian and Archivist of Canada

Keynote Address
Michael Gorman, president of the American Library Association, Dean of Library Services at the Henry Madden Library, California State University, Fresno.

Death of Metadata
Jeffrey Beall, Library, University of Colorado at Denver
Is metadata dead, or has word of its death been greatly exaggerated? The author of the article "Dublin Core: An Obituary" tells it as he sees it.

Metadata vs. Full-Text Search Engines
Denise Bedford, World Bank
The question is no longer full-text versus catalogue-type searching; the question is how and when you will implement semantic searching to promote interoperability.

Exploiting Metadata
Panellists: Linda Jackman, Consultant, Sierra Systems and Pierre Dumouchel, Vice-Président Scientifique, Centre de Recherche Informatique de Montréal (CRIM)
Discover how metadata can be a powerful tool for managing information for the Canadian Military History Gateway and the Centre de recherche informatique de Montréal.

Controlled Vocabulary and "Folksonomies"
Louise Spiteri, School of Information Management, Dalhousie University
Are folksonomies fundamentally chaotic and imprecise, or supremely responsive to user needs and vocabularies? Are they a revolution of self-organization on the Internet, or mob indexing at its worst?
