SimplyE: Modifying Metadata

Scheduled Dates

September 16, 2020 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT (Register Now)

Course Description
Status: 

In SimplyE, metadata is generated using more than one source. The initial metadata is retrieved from the e-resource vendor in the form of an OPDS feed. After receipt, the Metadata Wrangler then enhances that data. Library staff can then modify it further within the Circulation Manager.

Both the Library Manager and Librarian roles can modify a title's metadata and its classification. In addition, any questions or concerns about titles can be seen in this section.

In this class, participants will be provided with their own Circulation Manager with pre-loaded collections to work with. Participants will modify metadata, including classification, and discuss how patrons can identify metadata issues for library staff.
