This panel approaches metadata from the from the varied perspectives of audio archivists, music creators, labels, distributors, music services, and standards bodies in order to foster a collaborative conversation around how to capture, store, and distribute information about recorded sound. Panelists will compare best practices in the library world to how labels handle the same information and discuss how metadata travels through the pipeline (or doesn’t) to streaming services and end users.
