Another month, another digest... except that this one is on the web,
Please have a read, as there is important information about the possible
re-awakening of the IMS Metadata Working Group. Monthly digests will appear
on the Metadata SIG's web pages from now on. We have also introduced a
"Reference of the Month" feature. Let me know if you like this.
Scott Wilson has been working on the CETIS Encycolopedia (previously called
a glossary). This is now available for all SIG members to contribute to at:
You will need the following information to input entries:
User Name: cetis-sig
Have a look, and we'll talk about it at the meeting in March.
Speaking of which, we have a booking confirmed for the Chancellors
conference centre on 5 March (Many thanks to Gayle Calverly for organising
this). This is the day after the Educational Content SIG meeting, to make
things easier for those interested in both SIGs. Overnight accommodation is
available at the Conference Centre for those who plan to attend both
meetings, although I'm afraid we cannot cover any overnight costs.
I propose that the meeting should begin at 10.30am, to give everybody
plenty of time to get there. Lunch will be provided, and I expect the
meeting to finish by 4pm. As we will be paying for each delegate at the
meeting places will be restricted, and will be allocated on a first come
first served basis, so please let me know if you intend to come.
Here are some quick ideas for the agenda:
Report on progress of the Metadata Survey
Report on progress of the Guide to Metadata
Further developments and contributions to the guide to metadata.
Report on progress of the CETIS Encyclopedia
Material for the web pages
Please feel free to suggest any other matters that you would like to be
addressed at the meeting, and I'll put together a full agenda.
