Exploring Evolutionary Biologists’ Use and Perceptions of Semantic Metadata for Data Curation

Hollie C White


This poster will report on a study examining how evolutionary
biologists create and use personal metadata to organize their research data. Using
an ethnographic interview technique, participants are being interviewed about their
current and previous data organization styles and techniques. This information about
metadata and information organization can be used to inform new workflow and
organization models for knowledge organization and metadata creation practices in
developments for repositories, libraries, and cyberinfrastructures.
