From the Field - April 2015


Welcome to our first installment of FROM THE FIELD (get it?! the metadata field..?). Not quite a newsletter, not quite a listicle, the idea behind this “News Flash” is to bring you a curated assortment of metadata and digital object-related links and events, delivered to your inbox in one easy, no-frills email.

We plan to send these out about quarterly or monthly, depending on interest. Love it? Hate it? Have an idea for how to make it better? Let us know.

Your editors,

Mikki Macdonald, Sherri Berger, and Jasmine Burns
