The second in the series of JISC-British Library DataCite Workshops, focusing on metadata for data citation, will take place on Friday 6 July in the British Library Conference Centre.

About the Workshop:

Good quality metadata is essential for effective data discovery and citation. This workshop will take a look at the challenges that metadata-management presents for data repositories, as well as the potential tools that metadata can support. An introduction to the development of the DataCite schema will be presented, with an opportunity to discuss how it can be incorporated into day-to-day data management practices.

The emphasis of the workshop will be on practical approaches to metadata capture and usage, with case-studies providing an insight into how the issues are being addressed at the repository level.

Who should attend?

The workshop is open to anyone, although is particularly aimed at those who are working on JISC Managing Research Data funded project, and/or who are in the process of developing metadata policies and schema for their data collections.

Please note that attendance is limited to two people per project/institution.
