RT Journal DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 56574259 LA English T1 Metadata switch : thinking about some metadata management and knowledge organization issues in the changing research and learning landscape A1 Dempsey, Lorcan., Childress, Eric., Godby, Carol Jean., Hickey, Thomas Butler,, Vizine-Goetz, Diane., Young, Jeffrey A., OCLC Research., YR 2005 SN 0838983480 JF EScholarship. AB The academic library is not an end in itself. It supports research, learning and scholarship, and it must adapt as research and learning behaviors change in a network environment. The papers in this volume give a good sense of the challenges posed by such developments and the manifold library response. This paper briefly considers some of these issues, and takes them as its context, but quickly moves to a very specific emphasis. It considers how such library responses create new metadata management and knowledge organization questions, and it then outlines some of the work in OCLC Research which responds to these issues.
