The UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS) Metadata Research Center <MRC> has been established to advance research in metadata, semantics, and ontologies. Current <MRC> research initiatives target digital data, data-at-risk, and knowledge organization via leadership and engagement in Dryad, two HIVE datanet collaborations, the DCMI Science & Metadata Community, the DataONE/Preservation & Metadata Working Group, and the CODATA/Data-at-Risk Working Group.
Our information environs introduce issues requiring rigorous investigation of metadata generation techniques, applications, knowledge organization systems, linked data, standards, and more. The <MRC> leads and participates in research addressing significant questions and discovering metadata solutions for today’s most pressing information management challenges.
