Impact of Technical Standards on Metadata and Controlled Vocabulary Projects

Standards are part of our daily lives.  When embarking on a vocabulary or metadata project, we often turn to standards to guide our decisions to structure items a certain way or determine how detailed to be with different metadata types.  Panelists will discuss how technical standards played a part in developing features based on user requirements, accessing vendors and implementing their vocabulary and metadata projects.  They will also provide tips on how to traverse technical standards documentation.
