KBART Phase II: The Next Step Towards Better Metadata

After the publication of the Phase I recommendations to improve the exchange of metadata with knowledge bases in January 2010, the NISO/UKSG KBART working group has been working on enhanced recommendations in Phase II for the last two years. Our work will be finished by the end of this year and we would like to present our new proposal. Phase II will include new recommendations for eBook, Open Access and consortia metadata and significantly add to the already existing Phase I best practices.

The details of the new guidelines will be presented to the attendees so they can learn about the improvements these changes will have for the metadata transfer to knowledge bases. They will also get to hear about the current working group and a substantial amount of new endorsers for the recommended practice.

In the end, we would like to get some feedback from the audience about the results from Phase II and discuss these findings with them. Some very important topics have been touched so we would like to make sure that they are known to, understood by a bigger audience and we would like to point out the benefits which arise from these recommendations and how they affect different groups within the publishing community.
