   Metadata Intersections: Bridging the Archipelago of Cultural Memory
***********************************************************************

Metadata is fundamental in enabling ubiquitous access to cultural and scientific resources through galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM). While fundamental, GLAM traditions in documentation and organization lead to significant differences in both their languages of description and domain practices. And yet, the push is on for radically open cultural heritage data that bridges these differences as well as those across the humanities and the natural sciences. DC-2014 will explore the role of metadata in spanning the archipelago of siloed cultural memory in an emerging context of linked access to data repositories as well as repositories of cultural artifacts.
This year, the DCMI Annual Conference and Meeting of DCMI (DC-2014) is being hosted by the Texas Digital Library and held in Austin on the beautiful University of Texas campus. Four days of exciting sessions have been planned. While early registration has been extended, please don’t wait until the last minute. The Austin City Limits Music Festival overlaps the conference dates and hotel rooms will become increasingly scarce!
Won’t you join us in Austin?
Sincerely,
Stuart A. Sutton
DCMI Managing Director
