Subject: Catalogue & Index - Call for papers - March 2020 (issue 198)

As you may be aware the Cataloguing and Indexing Group is changing its name to the Metadata and Discovery Group.

We would like to celebrate this transformation with a special issue of C&I looking at the wider roles and responsibilities of the metadata world.

Does your role involve creating, managing, migrating or editing metadata in a variety of formats?

Do you work with and apply different standards to data in order to enable the discovery of resources?

Does your job fall outside of the traditional ‘cataloguer’ role?

Do you work with metadata in a non-traditional way?

We would like to hear from you if any of the above applies to you!

We are also interested in hearing from cataloguing and metadata specialists about what they think the future of their role / of working with metadata might entail.  What is your vision for the future?

The deadline for this issue is 29th February.

Please contact the editors (Karen Pierce: PierceKF at Cardiff.ac.uk and Philip Keates: P.Keates at kingston.ac.uk) with proposed papers, any queries, or if you want to offer a paper that does not fit into the theme mentioned.
We are always happy to consider papers on topics unrelated to an issue’s theme, especially if it is the result of some research you have conducted, or a project you have been involved in.

We welcome contributions from outside of the UK.

Papers can be up to 2,000 words, and we are happy to include a selection of images.  Please check our guidance for contributors:
