Metadata for Digitized Resources

 Registration is closed for this event
Providing metadata for digitized resources goes beyond traditional cataloging. What are the challenges to organizing and providing access to digitized materials on the Web? This workshop outlines the types of metadata necessary to a well-maintained digital collection, including metadata for discovery, navigation, administration/preservation, rights management, and structural metadata. Learn how well-formed and valid XML forms the basis for defining and establishing new metadata standards. Discover how libraries use XML-based standards such as the Encoded Archival Description (EAD), Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS), MARCXML, Dublin Core (DC), the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS) and other standards to enhance access to their digital collections and exchange information between repositories.

Learning Objectives

  • Articulate a definition of metadata
  • Describe the challenges of metadata on the Web
  • Identify the types of metatdata used in digital projects
  • Describe the role of XML in establishing and using metadata standards
  • Realize that metadata does not always come in the form of a record
  • Evaluate websites as metadata for presentation and navigation
  • Identify the two meanings of structural metadata
  • Explain how markup improves access
  • Explain the difference between preservation metadata and technical metadata
  • Identify types of rights metadata
