This session will offer an approachable introduction for metadata managers and digital library content contributors who would like to learn more about: metadata quality issues and metadata reuse, tips for partnering to improve user experience through metadata/data enhancement, and the how-to's of preparing local authority data for linked open data. The session will emphasize taking a collaborative approach and provide practical strategies for building metadata partnerships. The presenters will also share detailed information about a pilot project in Nevada to identify digital collections that had a high probability of potential links in the local agent (people and groups) vocabularies and report on results of the experiment.
