This event has passed.

Course Overview

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.


Catalogers, digital librarians, webmasters, archivists, special collections librarians, or anyone who has responsibilities for the description and access to collection materials.
