The escalation of Web2.0 technologies  allows more and more users to interact with online resources.
Users can contribute and interact with digital content, posting their opinion, commenting or making a description of specific content;  they can freely apply tags, comments, in order to manage and retrieve information that they found on digital libraries or social networks.

The key-questions we aim to respond are: Is this content handled in the same way as institutional and authoritative content? How does the institution decide to manage this content?
One has to consider different aspects, including the fact that the forms and the description of comments are not controlled (provenance issues) ; tagging or commenting is made by the entire user community and thus not by a limited number of information professionals; furthermore, one can never exclude the subjective interpretation of content (as images or video)and thus user-generated metadata based on personal information:  how do institution manage these "personal" metadata?
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together associations, archives, media companies, content providers and other involved in managing of the multimedia Digital Library with a focus on Performing Arts digital contents, that are interested in presenting their overall metadata management approach,  tools for metadata enrichment and interface solutions for metadata representations (mash-up, aggregation, etc.), in order to understand if institutions ascribe to these content the same degree of trustworthiness as institutionally generated content.
Thus, the our aims are two-fold:
a) to understand how institutions manage, organize and aggregate authoritative metadata with metadata provided by users through digital library tools,  documenting authoring tools which manage the user-generated metadata.
b) which is the impact of these tools on retrieving, reusing and sharing digital contents

Papers are invited to provide descriptions of: 
  • content management workflow with a focus on metadata  schema adopted
  • which kind of tools are implemented in their digital library  to allow metadata enrichment by the users
  • how these tools are managed by institution
  • how these “not authoritative” metadata should be incorporated into the existing metadata schema
  • which is the impact of these tools on the content dissemination and exploitation
The ECLAP Working Group on Digital Libraries Tools invites individual paper proposals for its Workshop.

 Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
  • digital library workflow description
  • metadata schema description
  • metadata tools for Multimedia Digital Library
  • content management system
  • collecting and processing user-generated content
  • user-generated content platforms
  • crowdsourcing
  • metadata modelling and gathering
  • annotation tools
  • advanced user interface for metadata representations((mash-up, aggregation, etc.)
  • multimedia retrieval
  • personalizing multimedia content

The contributions will help to formulate a number of best-practice guidelines that will help the sector to explore new business opportunities.

Please share your expertise by submitting a proposal to present at the ECLAP 2012 Conference.
