RDA DRAWG September Monthly Meeting Pre-Work and Agenda

  • Creator

    Michael Witt

    Hello all,
    The co-chairs kindly remind everyone who signed up to complete an attribute in the guide to wrap up their work on it by Thursday when we meet. We also ask you to give some thought to what made this task difficult or challenging, and we’ll go around the table and share these thoughts. This can help us better understand the problem space and challenges moving forward to completing a draft list of attributes in time for our October meeting.
    Matt will give an update on our project timeline and progress report, and Kazu and colleagues will present work they’ve done to begin to map our user stories to attributes and existing schemata, too. We’ll also ask the group for ideas for experts to invite to give lightning talks about existing approaches in describing and exposing descriptions of data repositories at our meeting in December (planning ahead!)
    It should be an action-packed meeting. Looking forward to seeing you there!
    1) Revisit timeline and mark progress – Matt
    2) Mapping of user stories / attributes / existing schemata – Kazu
    3) Concept guide / attributes challenges and wrapping up first draft – Michael & all
    4) Brainstorm invited speakers for December meeting – All
    Thursday, 15 September
