Mercian Metadata Group

The Mercian Metadata Group is one of the Collaboration's special interest group, approved at the March 2019 Directors Board meeting. As the name suggests, the group members have a particular interest in around the creation and management of metadata. Like most of the other SIGs, membership is representational and largely self-selected by individuals within membership organisations. The joint-chairs are Richard Birley (BCU) and William Peaden (Aston), supported by Group Secretary Ed Kirkland (Warwick), confirmed by popular acclaim at the Jan 2020 meeting.

The group’s activities, direction and contributions are overseen by the group’s Chair, as guided by input from the Mercian Collaboration Steering Group and supported by the MC Development Officer. The CG's Steering Group sponsor is Susan Ackermann.
