Library and Archives Canada (LAC) Session on Innovations in Metadata

New Directions in Description series, organized by Library and Archives Canada (LAC) in association with the Canadian Metadata Forum 2005 (www.collectionscanada.ca/metaforum/), presents two lectures discussing metadata research. The speakers are Deane Zeeman, from LAC who will cover the Metadata Strategy Catalytic Initiative of LAC and Dr. Joseph Tennis, University of British Columbia, will reveal research findings from the InterPARES2 project.

Theme: Innovations in Metadata Research
Date: Monday, September 26, 2005, 1:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Location: Auditorium, 395 Wellington, Ottawa

Part I: Metadata Strategy at Library and Archives Canada, presented by Deane Zeeman

In September 2004, LAC established four catalytic initiatives (digital collections, service delivery transformation, IT infrastructure and metadata strategy) to kick-start the newly-established organization as a 21st-century knowledge institution. The presentation will discuss the purpose, objectives, projects and deliverables of the Metadata Strategy Catalytic Initiative.

Having spent most of her professional career in the public, education and non-profit library sectors, Deane Zeeman's career in the Government of Canada began as Electronic Resource Librarian in the Department of Finance/Treasury Board Library, where her passion for information management lead to a keen interest in the potentialities of metadata for improved resource discovery. Three years ago, she moved to Library and Archives Canada (LAC) to develop a new service: providing customized high-quality metadata to other government departments on a cost-recovery basis. Deane is presently leading the Metadata Strategy Catalytic Initiative of LAC, focusing on innovative ways of enhancing user access to LAC's holdings of published and unpublished information resources by leveraging the power of descriptive standards.

Part II: Metadata and Description: Findings and New Research Trajectories from the InterPARES 2 Project, presented by Dr. Joseph Tennis

In this presentation, Dr. Tennis will discuss the findings related to metadata and description of the second phase of the InterPARES (International Research on Permanent Authentic Electronic Records) project, sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Pulling in work done in modelling the chain of preservation, he will identify new research questions arising from our current understanding of metadata and description -- especially the intersection between metadata and description as understood in archival science compared with the same practices and technologies in library and information science.

Joseph T. Tennis is an Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia's School of Library, Archival and Information Studies. He holds a Master of Library Science from Indiana University and received a PhD in Information Science from the University of Washington Information School. His comparative theoretical research addresses questions of document interpretation and representation for information systems, including subject analysis, controlled vocabularies, metadata and domain analysis.

The presentations will be in English, with simultaneous translation, and will last approximately an hour each, with a break for refreshments. Questions will be taken in both official languages after each presentation. This talk will be of interest to those in the library, archival, academic and information management communities. Delegates planning to attend the Canadian Metadata Forum are especially welcome.

Admission is free. Reservations are not required.
