10 Things on the 10th August: Cat Librarians, Archives, Taxonomy

Here are ten stupendous things to consider:

  1. Check out this review of David Diamond’s Metadata for Content Management. I am not all the way through the book yet, but the section describing the concepts of metadata, taxonomy, and controlled vocabulary is simple and elegant.
  2. How does Comedy Central use digital asset management to find the funny.
  3. Autotagging is one way to streamline digital asset management.
  4. Well formed metadata and library discovery.
  5. Nice post on the basics of taxonomy by my former classmate Theresa Putkey.
  6. From SAA, Archival Outlook for July and August has a good article on linked data and more.
  7. Photos from the world’s oldest operating photo studio.
  8. Bookshelves to big data at the New School.
  9. A primer on digital asset management from CCO magazine.
  10. Cat librarians.
