AI/Emerging Technologies and Standards | Annual Meeting Minneapolis Grand

20240515T1045 20240515T1130 America/Chicago Strange New Data World The metadata we interact with in the Ex Libris environment are increasingly harvested, manipulated and shared across Alma/Primo modules in ways that seem inaccessible to library professionals. Clarivate's investment in AI, and the upcoming release of linked data options in Alma/Primo will only widen this knowledge gap, if we let it. For this reason, the California State University (CSU) consortium put together a working group in 2023 focused on finding NEW ways for library workers to influence metadata in the Alma/Primo environment through direct manipulation in an ILS module, or through lobbying Ex Libris for product enhancements. We are interested in advocating for ways that library-trained, descriptive metadata specialists can have agency to improve library metadata in a world increasingly reliant on large data model algorithms. Our progress will be shared during this session. Minneapolis Grand Ex Libris Knowledge Days and ELUNA Events 2024 eluna-conf-planning@exlibrisusers.org
