In a post on the Digital Library Federation (DLF) blog, Julie Hardesty (Indiana University), Anna Neatrour (University of Utah), Bria Parker (University of Maryland), and Liz Woolcott (Utah Sate University) introduce the DLF Metadata Support Group, launched informally in 2016, as a resource for metadata and project management practitioners. DLF affiliation is not required for participating in the group.
The organizers have put together a Slack community, with “channels for linked data, python support, conferences, general questions and conversation and more.” They note that the Slack community is “the main focus of the group at this time.” Additionally, the group is “working on a collection of resources that we’re hoping will prove useful and grow in its usefulness over time.”
