Program Description

More Metadata: How do you evaluate the quality of your metadata? How do you determine where to put your energies when approaching a metadata cleanup project? What's in your metadata toolset and what's the best tool for the job? When is it a good idea to normalize your metadata to controlled vocabularies, and does your IR even allow this kind of normalization? Discussion of the nuts and bolts of metadata cleanup, and how to do it with limited staff time. Possible activity: uploading a sample dataset to OpenRefine (http://openrefine.org/), evaluating the set against the requirements of the Alliance Dublin Core Best Practices, and discussing paths to compliance.
