  • Identifies and addresses issues related to applications, technologies, and automated processes that support the Program
  • Cooperates with and elicits support from related organizations—the Program participants, national libraries, vendors, standards organizations, and others—with a focus on metadata creation, enhancement, management, use, and reuse
  • Maintains and shares best practices relating to users, applications, technologies, and automated workflows, as they relate to the mission of the Program, in collaboration with the Standing Committees on Standards and Training
