Canadian Metadata Forum

Library and Archives Canada are hosting a two-day Canadian Metadata Forum, with the purpose of bringing together participants from Canadian metadata communities, both government and non-government, such as libraries, archives, museums, industry, educational institutions and academia.

Metadata is an important tool in addressing the problem of resource discovery on the Web because it provides a standard way of describing resources.

The Forum aims to cover a wide spectrum of metadata applications such as the use of geospatial and statistical metadata, metadata for multimedia objects, accessibility issues related to metadata, etc.

The following sessions may be of interest:

  • Friday 19 September - E-Learning Metadata by Norm Friesen, University of Athabaska and CanCore.

  • Friday 19 September - Using the E-Learning Standard: Explor@2 by Gilbert Paquette, Téluq, Université de Québec.

  • Saturday 20 September - Web Accessibility Issues by Jutta Treviranus, Adaptive Technology Resource Centre, University of Toronto.

Date: from 18 September, 2003 to 19 September, 2003
Venue: 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, Canada
