Library Metadata Enriching and Discovery: practical workshop on using RDA, FRBR and MARC/BIBFRAME

This workshop blends emerging principles of metadata enriching, linking, openness and filtering (Alemu & Stevens, 2015) with practical hands-on exercises on using the RDA Toolkit, MARC21/BIBFRAME and Linked Data in libraries.     

In particular, the workshop covers:

  • Overview of contemporary library metadata theories, principles and standards
  • Using the RDA Toolkit  
  • FRBRisation problems and solutions
  • Bibliographic metadata sharing, subject headings and authority control
  • Streamlining cataloguing and metadata workflows 
  • Discovery services: metadata filtering, integrated search, faceted search and serendipitous discovery   

Call for workshops, tutorials and demonstrations

Following a successful workshop entitled “Current metadata landscape in the library” in MTSR-2017, we would like to expand this to a full-day pre-conference workshop in MTSR-2018. We are therefore inviting you to submit practical workshops, demonstrations and tutorials to the workshop chair Dr Getaneh Alemu ( This email address is being protected from spambots.
