  • We need an accredited pathway for cataloguers and metadata managers working in GLAM (and working for the companies that sell us systems, content and services e,g, MARC records) to follow. This would also help employers in their efforts to support and develop existing staff and recruit new or additional staff.

  • CILIP has already developed a specialist chartership pathway for KIM and HLG so this model could be used to develop a pathway for MDG. Note also the possibility of building on exisditing relationships with Library Schools and organisations like WikimediaUK, Library Juice etc.

  • CILIP already has connections with employers, library schools and external training providers. It could leverage these relationships to develop and implement accredited pathways for cataloguers and metadata managers.
