Metadata for Digitization and Preservation (Online)

Presented By: LYRASIS

Description: Metadata is a fundamental element of any digitization project. This class is designed for catalogers and non-catalogers who are planning for access and preservation of digital materials. In the first session topics include different aspects of metadata, including metadata formats, content rules, controlled vocabularies, data models, and metadata encoding (such as XML). Descriptive, administrative, structural and preservation metadata are covered. The second session introduces the use of METS as an information package to include metadata and digital content. It shows how access to digital material may be implemented using METS and how it supports metadata needed for digital preservation. 

Learning Outcomes

Outline how METS facilitates access to and preservation of digital materials
Understand how features of XML structure are used to package metadata and content 
Review different metadata schemes to provide descriptive and preservation related metadata within the METS structure, including Dublin Core, MODS, PREMIS and technical metadata schemes such as MIX, TextMD, audio and video schemes
