Optimizing Catalog Metadata

Ensuring Discovery and Access in Our Libraries

In the wake of a sudden shift toward remote access, librarians are re-assessing priorities in making collections accessible to patrons who are unable to visit the physical library. Metadata maintenance efforts can be crucial to facilitating this change.

In this presentation, guest speaker Tom Adamich explores the challenges and opportunities of a renewed focus on library metadata. He discusses assessment and optimization of catalog data, as well as the roles a vendor might play in support of a library's plans.

Tom Adamich is a professor and technical services and reference librarian at Monroe County Community College, and president of the Visiting Librarian Service.

Tom is joined by Casey Cheney and Laura Folaumahina of Backstage Library Works in answering audience questions.
