Emma Booth is e-Resources Metadata Specialist at the University of Manchester Library, and the author of the National Acquisition Group's report, Quality of Shelf-ready Metadata.
In this Zoom seminar, she will speak on metadata, why it matters and how she has used it throughout her career.
Afterwards, there will be plenty of time for discussion, so do bring your own metadata tales with you!
The seminar will be chaired by Anne Welsh.
In response to suggestions from participants in other Beginning Cataloguing events, this is our first entirely synchronous seminar: no preparation in advance (except for the speaker, obviously), no recordings afterwards, just an expert speaker talking on Zoom for around half and hour followed by group discussion and chat.
