Libraries are generally welcoming organisations and places. Engaging with communities, inviting all comers to immerse themselves in the information rich environment curated for the benefit of all, from the entertainment seeker to the educational specialist. Traditionally this immersion would take place in open welcoming impressive buildings at the heart of the town square or university campus.
However, as witnessed by the phenomena of the declining town centre and the lockdown Zoom culture of 2020, traditional routes to resources are changing rapidly. In the online discovery and delivery world that has emerged, metadata especially quality metadata, about resources and information is key. Without a detailed understanding of available resources, it can be difficult if not impossible to direct them towards those that might benefit from reading, watching, analysing, interacting with, or purchasing them.
