Emma Booth

E-Resources Metadata Specialist - University of Manchester
I'm a metadata specialist and cataloguer based in the UK. I'm passionate about the creation, curation and management of descriptive metadata for library resources, with the ultimate goal of supporting library-users with online discovery and access to collections. My day-to-day work involves creating and enriching metadata to ensure the discoverability of all electronic content acquired by and licensed to the University of Manchester, from books, journals, streaming videos and audio to Digital Archival Collections and online research databases.

I am an advocate for making high quality standardised metadata an intrinsic part of content acquisitions and procurement processes as it is crucial for supporting resource discovery, collection management and evidence-based collection development strategies.

Current member of the National Acquisitions Group Exec Committee, and the CILIP Metadata & Discovery Group Committee.
Author of the NAG Quality of Shelf-Ready Metadata Report.
