Whether we like it or not, metadata is an essential component of the entire data life cycle. This session will highlight solutions from various organizations and groups that are developing and integrating metadata curation, publishing, and evaluation tools. The lightning-style talks will convey:

- Purpose of the Tool
- Strengths of the Tool
- Weaknesses of the Tool
- Planned Improvements
- Dreams of New Capabilities

Following the talks, there will be a collaborative discussion. Slido will be used to capture the responses and attendees will be able to vote on what topics they want to discuss. Please bring your metadata tools questions and ideas to the session!
