Meeting title

Data Type Registries WG Progress Reports and Outlook

Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group: 

The first version of the Data Type Registries Working Group closed out last year, wrote its final report, was endorsed as an RDA Recommendation, and the current incarnation was started as a follow-up. The initial DTR WG focused on developing an infrastructural component that would manage data type records. The new WG, DTR #2, will focus on aiding data producers come up with useful data type records.

A brief overview of progress to date will be followed by a series of reports of ongoing projects involving DTR activities, a progress report on a related ISO study group, and future outlook for the group and its activities. We anticipate a full session with contributions from a number of existing projects but will reserve time for additional short presentations and discussions.
