An Introduction to PBCore 2.0: Metadata for Public Broadcasters
PBCore has served the Public Media community as a metadata schema for describing media since 2005. With a new round of funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, WGBH Boston is working on PBCore 2.0 – an updated version which will increase its flexibility as a schema and therefore its applicability to diverse user scenarios. In addition, a new web site with updated documentation is set to launch. Come learn about PBCore: how it is evolving, how it is applied, and how it can benefit your workflow and interoperability as a video content producer or consumer.

IASA/AMIA, Nov 2-6, Philadelphia
Coming Attraction: PBCore 2.0
There are a number of metadata standards being used by the library and archival community. However few are adequate, and easy for describing media collections. PBCore is a metadata standard that was developed specifically to describe media. Many in the moving image archival community have begun to utilize the standard. After 2 years of a development hiatus, a new initiative has launched to continue development of the standard to bring it to PBCore 2.0. This session will give an overview of PBCore – why it is a good standard to use for media collections and the work to date to bring it to PBCore 2.0. It will demo and tour the new redesigned PBCore.org website highlighting changes, navigation, and the community input features. And finally there will be several use cases showing practical use of PBCore in real archive projects. The end will be a roundtable discussion to get more feedback from the AMIA/IASA community and take questions.

In addition, join the listserv to stay current on PBCore.
