About

The Metadata Working Group reports to the Emory Libraries’ Cabinet, a cross-unit body including representation of Directors from the Woodruff Library, school Libraries (Theology, Law, Oxford, Business, Health Sciences), Academic Technology Services, Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS), and works closely with additional University IT Services and Research Solutions units.

The Working Group includes representation from ECDS, MARBL, Woodruff Library, Law School Library, and Emory University IT Application Development. Additional stakeholders and sub-groups include representatives from Emory Libraries' Core Systems team, the Pitts Theological Library, Oxford College Library, the Carlos Museum and Emory’s Department of Art History, who support/utilize shared digital asset management systems and have contributed to the Working Group’s guidelines.
