Metadata 2020 is a collaboration that envisions a future with better metadata; not only increasing discoverability of content, but also benefiting reputation management, attribution, discoverability, efficiency, data reproducibility and reusability, in addition to future services that don’t yet exist! It aims to facilitate the collaboration of all in scholarly communications to consistently improve metadata to enhance discoverability, facilitate new services, and create efficiencies with the ultimate goal of accelerating scholarly discovery. This session will focus on our efforts to address the particular needs of book metadata and discoverability in the scholarly landscape. Feedback from attendees is welcome and encouraged.
