|The Metadata Community — Supporting Innovation in Metadata Design, Implementation & Best Practices|
Global navigation options:
The Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) and OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. are organizing an invitational workshop to promote convergence among alternative approaches to describing images and image databases in networked environments. Professionals from computer science, librarianship, online information services, geographical information systems, museum and archive control, medical imaging, and other fields have been convened to address the description of networked image resources. The objective is to promote standards and protocols for the description, organization and discovery of networked images and image databasebase resources.
This workshop will build upon the outcomes of two previous metadata workshops: the OCLC/NCSA Metadata Workshop, held at Dublin, Ohio, in March, 1995, and the OCLC/UKOLN Metadata Workshop held at the University of Warkwick, United Kingdom, in April, 1996. These two workshops addressed the general issue of metadata in networked environments. The current workshop will address the metadata requirements of networked images and imagebases by refining and extending element set that comprises the "Dublin Core" and "The Warwick Framework" that resulted from the previous workshops.
