Open Teleconference May 2023 - KBART (Knowledge Bases And Related Tools)

Open Teleconference

KBART is a NISO Recommended Practice that facilitates the transfer of holdings metadata from content providers to knowledge base suppliers and libraries. The first iteration of the KBART Recommended Practice, which focused on journal holdings, was published in 2010; a 2014 "Phase II" revision extended support to metadata for e-books, conference proceedings, consortial subscriptions, and some open access publications. Starting in early 2020, the KBART Standing Committee has been hard at work on research and actions around elements of its Phase III work with subgroups addressing areas of work such as clarifying the recommendations, revamping the mission statement, determining new fields, and creating a new file guide.  

Join KBART Standing Committee members Mark Calkins, Ben Johnson, Noah Levin, Bobbi Patham, and Andrew Senior as they discuss the group's progress on KBART Phase III, the work of its subgroups on new fields and new file formats, and answer any questions about the group's work.
