Metadata Madness is an "unconference," where session topics are proposed at the beginning of the conference and voted on by participants. Anyone attending can propose a session related to metadata, such as tools, schemas, controlled vocabularies, ethics, or anything you can think of! You can volunteer to lead a session or just participate. You will also learn how to plan your own unconference and receive digital copies of the Unconference Proceedings to continue the discussion at your institution. Metadata Madness is informative and hands-on, emphasizing equality, learning, and fun!
This event is intended for metadata practitioners, tech services librarians, archivists, digital services librarians, students, and anyone interested in metadata.
