Two Workshops on Metadata This Month at METRO


METRO is pleased to work with one of our veteran instuctors on a pair of workshops on metadata this April. Rebecca Guenther will join us to present a one-and-a-half day session on PREMIS on April 11th and 12th, and a class on the Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) on April 26th.

Both of these programs will provide librarians, archivists, and other information professionals with the skills needed to acurately describe a wide range of materials within a predefined metadata schema. Next week's workshop on PREMIS will cover techniques in preserving key information about digital content in order to ensure a livelihood for collections of digital objects. This session will also discuss the use of PREMIS in Linked Data on the Semantic Web.

On Friday, April 26th, Using MODS to Describe Cultural Heritage Resources will explore the use of MODS in digital library projects, including the design principles and data elements needed to create robust and functional records that are capable of working with other metadata formats. This session will also cover the Bibliographic Framework Transition Initiative.

Please feel free to contact Laura Forshay, METRO's Professional Development Manager, with any questions.
