Calling all content providers!  Do you want create KBART compliant metadata files, but don’t know where to begin?  Are you looking to upgrade your metadata from the KBART Phase I to the new KBART Phase II requirements? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, then this workshop is for you.

Join members of the KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools) Standing Committee as they guide you through the ins and outs of the KBART Phase II Recommended Practice. Through classroom instruction and hands-on experience, the workshop will provide in-depth coverage of all KBART data elements, with special focus on many of the most frequently asked questions about the recommended practice. The session will also outline the steps in the KBART adoption process and highlight the benefits of endorsement. Participants will also gain insight into how the provision of standardized metadata can increase exposure of their electronic content, ensure smoother interoperability with knowledge base and link resolver vendors, and ultimately improve end user access. Don’t be afraid to take the plunge and see what KBART can do for you!

Target Audience: This workshop is targeted primarily at content providers and individuals responsible for supplying data to knowledgebases and link resolver vendors.  They are first step in the data supply chain; the KBART Recommended Practice is geared towards this group specifically.
