CFP: Workshop “Metadata Management in Film Archives”
The Association des Cinémathèques Europénnes (ACE) and the FIAF Cataloguing and Documentation Commission have issued a Call for Presentations for their jointly organised workshop "Metadata Management in Film Archives - Putting the Cinematographic Works Standard EN 15907 to use and introducing the new FIAF Cataloguing Manual" to be held on 29 and 30 March 2017 at the Brandenburgisches Zentrum für Medienwissenschaften (ZEM), Potsdam.
Aim of the workshop is to discuss practical experiences with EN 15907, open questions and the status of implementation at film archives. The workshop will also discuss and present the latest approaches and best practices of Linked Data concepts offering new ways of storing and sharing data. EN 15907 is a central reference for the new FIAF Moving Image Cataloguing Manual (2016), which serves as an important extension of EN 15907 by helping professionals create cataloguing or metadata records that will meet requirements of new database implementations and/or the adoption of new metadata standards.
