Event Description
Hosted by the  Metadata Research Center  at the College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) at Drexel University, Metadata Mixers offer speakers, lightning talks and discussions at the cutting edge of metadata research. Time will be allocated for open discussion, updates and networking. Metadata Mixers are free and open to the public. No RSVP required.
Featured Speaker: Jean Godby, PhD, Senior Research Scientist at OCLC
Talk Title: "Data Science Research and Development at OCLC"
This presentation will survey projects now underway that use data-science solutions to address users’ perceptions that library metadata is noisy, redundant, and not entirely fit for purpose. Data quality has always been a research interest at OCLC. But in today’s environment, this work is more urgent because it is being conducted as library resource description is undergoing a generational change.

About the Speaker:
Jean Godby is a Senior Research Scientist at OCLC. She has spent over twenty-five years exploring data-oriented research interests in library metadata standards, schema mapping and transformation, exchange between libraries and publishers, knowledge discovery, and new models of resource description. Jean currently leads a team of researchers and engineers on projects featuring data science and linked data. Jean has a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Ohio State University.
