> DARWIN & MARC: a voyage of metadata discovery--Stephanie Haas
> Funded in 1997 by the Institute of Museum and Library Services,
> "Linking Florida's Natural Heritage" was designed to allow researchers
> search both library bibliographic databases and museum specimen
> distributed throughout the state of Florida through the same Web-based
> interface. This talk discusses the attempts to define common attributes
> of MARC and specimen records and the conundrum of taxonomic vs.
> common names.
> Colorado Digitization Project--Bill Garrison
> The Colorado Digitization Project (CDP) has had quite a bit of
> with metadata and metadata standards. The process used to reach
> on metadata standards and to teach metadata will be described. In
> addition, the Western Trails Digitization Project and its metadata
> standards will be discussed.
> Teaching with Digital Content--Nuala A. Bennett
> We have brought together a group of ten libraries and museums and
> their digital content with K-12 teachers and are identifying reliable
> methods of integrating this content into teaching units and learning
> guides, demonstrating innovative technology-based applications using
> materials, and evaluating and reporting on their effectiveness.
> Libraries and museums contribute digitized primary source materials and
> accompanying metadata in Dublin Core-based format to an online database
> and search engine.
> Metadata: Costs per Unit Effort?--Tom Moritz
> In the natural history museum environment, world wide, there are
> potentially many hundreds of millions of digital information objects
> requiring management. A 1998 article in Nature suggested there might
> be 3 billion specimens in the collections of 6,500 natural history
> institutions. The cost of original, mediated indexing of these
> collections is potentially huge. A dilemma for the natural history
> community is the development of methods for applying and enhancing
> original provenance metadata. This problem, including a possible
> for natural history information and discussion of possible XML
> applications, will be discussed in the light of our experience at AMNH
> developing the American Museum of Natural History
> Congo Expedition Website.
