Recent Alumni Presented at DCMI 2022

The twentieth International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications (DCMI 2022) took place on October 3-7. These conferences expanded the DCMI scope to the whole spectrum of metadata innovation, best practices, and focused on challenges and opportunities in a diverse and data-intensive world.  

At the conference, five Kent State University iSchool alumni had the opportunity to give their own presentations on diverse topics relating to metadata uses, best practices, management, etc. Let’s check out some of the amazing work our alumni have been up to.
