Transition to the Metadata Standards Catalog WG

21 Jan 2016

Dear WG members,
We are happy to confirm that the RDA Council has formally Recognized and Endorsed the Metadata Standards Catalog Working Group. Since the Catalog group is a follow-on to this Directory group, our activity and attention will now be directed entirely to the new group.
As I result of this, I would urge you to do two things:
* If you have not already done so, please do join the new group:
* Please direct any messages you have, whether announcements, discussion points or suggestions, to the mailing list for the Catalog group, not this Directory list.
We would like to thank you for taking part in the development of our first-phase Metadata Standards Directory, and we hope you will join us in developing it further into a machine-actionable Catalog.
Alex Ball, Keith Jeffery, and Rebecca Koskela
