Michael Day has worked at UKOLN in Bath since June 1996. UKOLN is jointly funded by the British Library Research and Innovations Centre (RIC) and the Joint Information Systems Committee of the higher education funding councils of the United Kingdom (JISC). Its brief is to support the UK library and information community. Michael works in a small research team devoted to the subject of metadata. Information on the research Michael and his colleagues are carrying out in this area can be found on the UKOLN Metadata Web pages (URL: http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/metadata/). Michael will also be contributing the occasional article on metadata to Ariadne, a parallel print and web-based newsletter.

Before moving to Bath, Michael worked as a librarian in several different UK organisations, most recently in the Bodleian Library (Oxford) and the University of Reading. Michael studied Library and Information Studies at Loughborough University, graduating with a Masters degree in 1989. His interest in preserving digital information started back then. His publications include Preservation problems of electronic text and data (1990) and Extending metadata for digital preservation (1997 - forthcoming). Michael's ongoing bibliograpy on the Preservation of electronic information is available on the Web (URL: http://homes.ukoln.ac.uk/~lismd/preservation.html).
