Dr Michael Jubb, Director of the Research Information Network, is my guest for this podcast.
The RIN was established by the higher education funding councils, the research councils, and the national libraries in the UK to investigate how efficient and effective the information services provided for the UK research community are.
As part of their role, they publish many reports to inform and create debate to lead to real change. Our conversation focuses on the recently published “Creating catalogues: bibliographic records in a networked world”, which explores the production and supply chain of bibliographic metadata for physical and electronic books, journals, and articles. We discuss the need for the report, and therefore change in this area, its recommendations and possible ways forward.
