Rebecca Guenther's retirement from Library of Congress and subsequent move to New York City means the regional library community gains a leading expert in bibliographic information. According to a recent tribute to Guenther by her colleagues at LC, "Guenther has nurtured
conversations among international library stakeholders, conversations that led to the development of MODSMADS and the enhancement of MARC. She helped build a solid foundation for discovery metadata. Simply put, she has almost single-handedly made it easier for the world to find things online."
The "digital pioneer" will join us at METRO for two events this fall; a lecture on the metadata trends for digital collections and a workshop on preservation metadata. Join us for one or both:
