Remember, this month's Products & Services telecon has been rescheduled
*Products & Services telecon*
*Tue Oct 23th * at *1:30 PM ET*
Access Code: *1297219*
I'd like to define technical content for one or more workshops at the
Winter Meeting, or ways to take advantage of other planned sessions to
identify specific inventory requirements and determine which are not
adequately addressed in current metadata catalogs.
Is such an inventory merely a format for existing information? Catalog
level or more granular and including location/date/element detail where
applicable? Conforming to ISO standards or forging new ground with
light weight protocols? Comprehensive or geared only to items
represented with a metadata record? Manually or automatically created?
Static or dynamic? Is it a harvest, a separate repository, or a
distributed search strategy involving ontologies, the semantic web,
Bayesian search techniques and web services? A strategy to work with
existing metadata recs, best practices and recommended mods / additions
to current metadata, or a completely new category? For discovery or
actual order service / fulfillment? Supporting infrastructure for EIE
or portal independent? Focused on requirements from providers,
technologists or end users? Independent effort or closely coordinated
with the seemingly independent efforts in the Air and Water clusters?
With the winter meeting fast approaching and the intervening holidays,
there's little time to plan an effective program. Your input can help
guide the effort toward a productive result, and such input is welcome
at tomorrow's telecon.
