Marina Morgan

Metadata Librarian

As the Metadata Librarian my focus is to provide a seamless flow from discovery of information to delivery of content in any format, to establish metadata policies and procedures for various cataloguing and digital projects, while providing expertise on data creation, curation, preservation, maintenance, and enrichment of metadata for digital and physical collections.”

Before coming to Florida Southern College, Marina taught a wide range of metadata and cataloguing courses in Canada at Seneca College - Library and Information Technician Program in Toronto, ON and at Mohawk College - Library and Information Technician Program in Hamilton, ON.

Marina has a diverse experience working with various cataloging and metadata standards, controlled vocabularies, and web technology standards. As a librarian she worked in highly collaborative environments on various special collections and digital scholarship projects, while cataloguing, promoting, and helping develop several digital collections such as Children’s Literature Archive (http://childrenslit.library.ryerson.ca/) and The Real Story of Winnie the Bear (http://therealwinnie.ryerson.ca/collection/).

Marina is actively involved in scholarly research and contributed to the library profession through presentations, and peer reviewed posters and papers to various international conferences.
