6. Joanne Evans (Monash University) - Report on the Clever Recordkeeping Metadata Research Project.
7. Karen Skelton (NAA) and Evelyn Wareham (Archives New Zealand) Exploring metadata together - the Australia / New Zealand collaborative experience. In late 2007 the National Archives of Australia and Archives New Zealand embarked on a collaborative journey to develop a set of common recordkeeping metadata products, based on ISO 23081. Building on the National Archives' earlier technical work and Archives NZ's work on implementation guidelines, the two national institutions shared ideas, resources, feedback and effort to produce a standard and accompanying practical tools that, with only a light tailoring, are able to be applied in both jurisdictions.
