METRO Workshop: "Introduction to Metadata for Digital Projects, New York, NY

METRO invites you to hone your core digital library skills at our upcoming “Introduction to Metadata for Digital Projects” workshop on Tuesday, April 20th and Wednesday, April 21st from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

A digital collection is only as good as its metadata is strong. Understanding the role that metadata plays in the digital environment is the focus of this introductory workshop, where Dr. Marcia Zeng will explain the principles, concepts, and types of metadata while focusing on its applications in digital collections. Additional topics will include issues in metadata interoperability, vocabulary control, quality control and evaluation. Join us for this two-part workshop and add some additional skills to your digital library toolbox.
