Metadata 2020 is a collaboration that envisions a future with better metadata; not only increasing discoverability of content, but also benefiting reputation management, attribution, discoverability, efficiency, data reproducibility and reusability, in addition to future services that don’t yet exist! It aims to facilitate the collaboration of all in scholarly communications to consistently improve metadata to enhance discoverability, facilitate new services, and create efficiencies with the ultimate goal of accelerating scholarly discovery.

Almost a year after launch, Metadata 2020 has gained considerable ground in gathering information from multiple community groups surrounding metadata challenges and opportunities to find ways to enhance metadata and find new solutions. Now that Metadata 2020 has received feedback and stories from all sectors of the research and scholarly communication cycle, we are targeting crucial points where metadata needs to work across all groups in order for a mature metadata model to become a useful reality.

The Metadata 2020 Librarian Community Group seeks to conduct a workshop to narrow in on insights from serials metadata experts to:

1. Better understand the current state of serials metadata
2. Consider the flow of serials metadata between publishers, libraries, repositories and service providers, and how it could be improved
3. List the roadblocks that prevent smooth transition of serials metadata from one place to another
4. Develop recommendations for the groups within Metadata 2020 to consider (Library Group, Funder Group, Researchers Group, Publishers Group, Service Provider Group and Data Publishers/Repositories Group)

This session will use a roundtable and group discussion format, and will deliver a set of roadblocks and recommendations for improvement for Metadata 2020 to use in their goal of creating best metadata practices across the scholarly communications/research lifecycles.
