Jane Smith, MSIS '13, brings passion for music and metadata to LC and MLA
A few years ago, you would have been forgiven for not expecting that Jane Smith (MSIS '13) would now be serving on a bibliographic control working group of the Music Library Association (MLA). With a Master's degree in music and a number of opera performances and competitions under her belt, you might have thought the Washington, D.C. landmark she was bound for was the Kennedy Center, not the Library of Congress. But her love of music and a newfound interest in metadata, controlled vocabularies and thesauri have guided her on an exciting new career path. The latter has been fostered by her work as a research assistant at the Metadata Research Center at SILS.
