Knowledge Bases: The heart of resource management

This session will discuss the knowledge base metadata lifecycle, current and upcoming metadata standards, and the effect that knowledge bases have on discovery and e-resource management. The presenters will look at ways knowledge bases can be leveraged to create downstream tools for resource management and discovery. The session will also provide different perspectives on knowledge bases, including from librarians and product managers, as well as a discussion of the NISO's KBART Automation recommended practice and what this could mean for knowledge bases in the future. The session will also include a conversation regarding how leveraging knowledge bases can aid librarians in improving resource discovery within their own libraries and ultimately decrease the amount of time spent on metadata workflows. Through this presentation, we also aim to improve communication between the library community and metadata providers and creators.
