CIG Member Poll for Group Name Change

At a meeting on 5th June Committee discussed changing the name of the Group.

We think that a new name would benefit the membership because it would:

  • Acknowledge the intrinsic skills of descriptive & subject cataloguing, classification & indexing but also highlight the work that CIG members already do in creating, disseminating and enriching metadata using various content standards;
  • Emphasise the link between all of these activities and the search, discovery & access experience;
  • Reinforce the relevance of the Group across the information profession & widen our appeal so that we can increase our membership and offer more support across our technical areas of expertise.
