CIG Scotland warmly invites you to the seventh seminar in our Metadata & Web 2.0 series, which takes place at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh on the 5th of April.
This year the theme is metadata from the past, the present, and the future … with a sub plot on personal metadata. Along the way we’ll be exploring metadata gaming, digital rights, web archiving, the emotional analysis of music online, crowdsourcing, transcription of manuscripts online, Rio 2016, the Statistical Accounts of Scotland, and managing your digital footprint, with speakers from the British Library, Strathclyde University, EDINA, the 5Rights Youth Commission, the National Library of Scotland, and Edinburgh University.
More information and details on how to register are available at https://cigs-somewhere-over-the-rainbow.eventbrite.com
We’ll also be running a small competition on the day, involving cupcakes, book tokens and tweets – come to the event to find out more!
Registration will open at 10:00, with the event kicking off at 10:30 and finishing at 16:00
The ticket price includes refreshments and a light buffet lunch.
We look forward to seeing you in April!
Historic note: It’s ten years since our first Metadata & Web 2.0 event ‘Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore’. So we thought it would be a fitting time to return to our roots, look beyond the rainbow, and see where metadata and web 2.0 are now. For those with an interest in web 3.0 and metadata developments, look out for the next instalment in our linked data series.
