Description

Metadata librarians' engaging in the university knowledge community is becoming a trend in recent
years. In preparing for this change, it can be challenging for the metadata librarians to step out of the "back room", engage in scholarly communication and actively participate in the university knowledge
community. This presentation discusses the shifting environment, the required changes for the
metadata librarians such as developing professional and technical competency, acquiring new knowledge and skills and getting into the new world to be more connected to students, faculty and researchers, and various factors that will affect the situation. It concludes that the best way for Metadata Librarians to be connected to the university knowledge community still needs further exploration.
