The Metadata Encoding Transmission Standard (METS) is an XML schema that binds complex digital objects and their descriptive and administrative metadata together. Objects and metadata can reside within the METS object, either as XML or Base64 encoding, or, the METS object can link to the digital objects and their metadata. This workshop introduces the METS standard; discusses the role of METS profiles in defining specific applications of METS; and outlines the sections of a METS object, presenting alternative methods for storing or linking to digital objects and their metadata. For homework, students will build a METS object using supplied image files and XML metadata records.
Completion of any one of the following Amigos workshops, while not required, denotes sufficient experience to enroll in METS: the Basics:
