The Hedgehog Librarian, Abigail Goben, has collected a number of interesting metadata related tidbits on her blog. One of the most interesting observations is regarding the number of LIS jobs that are directly related to dealing with, modelling and even visualizing metadata. Here is the list of positions plus a few new ones. Take note of the skill sets and buzz words used in the descriptions.
