The Metadata Marching Band

Polishing the instruments, tuning up, gathering the sheet music, getting ready; Metadata 2020 has rapidly grown into a band of over 130 individuals; who, over the last 18 months have been committed to working together to affect big change - achieving consistency in metadata terminology; mapping between schemas, reviewing and curating existing information and guidance; creating tools for navigation; and producing resources in concert across several scholarly communications communities.  Metadata 2020 believes that to truly achieve consistency across multiple communities we must collaborate and pool our knowledge and resources so that we can all march to the beat of the same drum.  

We are nearly ready to perform, engaging multiple communities and providing with the tools they need to navigate metadata in scholarly communications. We need help from the ensemble of PID-supporters to add strength and volume to the chorus of our core message and help spread the word about metadata use and adoption - particularly among the research community who will see the biggest benefit from improvements - so that we can all sing from the same hymn sheet.
