After searching for months and months for a place information professionals could discuss Semantic web, metadata, controlled vocabularies and the like, I finally found a few folks on nextgenlib who were interested in starting a new listserv, which we've aptly named Techie Librarian.

It's for metadata Library and Information Science professionals who have some technical knowledge, but may not want to slog through information architecture infrastructure discussions to get help on authority control of CV's, data management, and where the jobs are for metadata professionals.

Please join us.

I'd love to join this list but... (none / 0) (#1)

I fail to see why topica needs my gender, date of birth, and zip code (I assume in my case my postal code would have to suffice). Why can't this list be hosted by someone who doesn't want to create a demographic profile of me?

"CV's"? (none / 0) (#2)

What does "CV" stand for in "authority control of CV's"? If it's 'curriculum vitae', what sort of authority control are you doing with them? Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, metadata isn't my strong suit. -dc
