University Hall, Dalhousie



This public event offers the opportunity for professionals, students and
educators to discover recent research explorations by students in the MLIS
programme at Dalhousie's School of Information Management. From geospatial
information to archival metadata, the possibilities are rich for extended
research for thesis projects.



Geolibraries: Policies for Open Access to Geospatial Information

James Boxall



Abstract: Geolibraries and repositories of geospatial information are often
closely related to government agencies as much geospatial information is
generated by governments at municipal to federal levels. Levels and
categories of access to such information is directly related to information
policies such as copyright, price structures, and (more recently) security.
This presentation explores a model known as PPGIS -- "public participatory
geographic information systems." The presentation investigates how a PPGIS
approach might influence the policy process to enable open access to
geospatial information within geolibraries.



James Boxall is the Director of the GIS Centre and Curator of the Map
Collection. He is a past-president of the Association of Canadian Map
Libraries and Archives and incoming vice-president of the Canadian
Cartographic Association. He sits on the ILFA Geography and Maps Section,
and is a member of review boards for three journals. In addition, James is
active on national and local geomatics and geography committees, and has
been a consultant to numerous geographic associations. James has published
widely on geography and map libraries in a range of journals including
Government Information Quarterly. He was recently named a Fellow of the
Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers).



The Uses of Archival Metadata for Administration and Resource Discovery

Kathryn Harvey



Abstract: This presentation provides a synopsis of the aims and methodology
of Dr Harvey's MLIS thesis, particularly focusing on the provision of a
model for evaluating archival metadata management and recommendations for
standardizing administrative metadata collection, streamlining the
description process, and improving resource discovery. Given that the
Dalhousie University Archives implemented the holdings metadata survey to
conduct a full-scale assessment of the metadata about its private manuscript
holdings, the presentation will also examine the efficacy of the survey
methodology and outline the steps taken to analyse the

survey results and to bring the holdings metadata up to the recommended
minimum standard.



Kathryn Harvey received her PhD in English from the University of Alberta in
1995 and her MLIS at Dalhousie in 2005 with a thesis on the uses of
administrative and descriptive archival metadata. Between these degrees she
served as a post-doctoral fellow on the Orlando Project on the history of
women's writing at the University of Alberta, an instructor of English at
the University of Alberta as well as Dalhousie and Mount Saint Vincent, the
production manager of The Dalhousie Review, Executive Director of the
Canadian Association of Learned Journals, and Manager of the Thomas Head
Raddall Electronic Archive Project. She has been employed since 2003 at the
Dalhousie University Archives and Special Collections as its Archives
Specialist.
