Course Overview

Are you involved in a digital project at your institution? How will you describe your digital objects in order to provide online access to them? One option is to use the Dublin Core, one of the most widely used element sets in the world.

This live online class will be presented in 2 parts:

Thursday, April 25, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Central Time)
Wednesday, May 1, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Central Time)

In addition to learning about the Dublin Core 15 element set, we will cover allowable refinements of the Dublin Core, and the value of using encoding schemes for some of the elements (e.g. using a controlled vocabulary for the "Subject" Dublin Core element).

You will be asked to complete at least 1-2 Dublin Core records as take home work after Part 1, to be reviewed and discussed as a group in Part 2.

We'll wrap up the course by looking at some of the more commonly cited Dublin Core metadata best practice guides and how they may help you develop and implement your own local guidelines for your digital collection/s.
