Event Description

This two-day online course will be held on Tuesday-Wednesday, July 29-30, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Students must attend both sessions.


Metadata is a fundamental element of any digitization project. This class is designed for non-catalogers who are planning for access and preservation of digital materials. This introduces the use of METS as a container for metadata and digital content. It explores XML descriptive metadata schemes, how access to digital material may be implemented using METS, and reviews preservation metadata, including format-specific technical metadata.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Outline how METS facilitates access and preservation to 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

This class will be held in the Lyrasis Adobe Connect meeting room. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.
