This eight-week online course provides a substantial introduction to creating and managing descriptive metadata for digital collections in libraries, archives, and museums. It includes hands-on exercises in creating metadata for digital images and other resources using Dublin Core and MODS, and to a lesser extent, VRA. Participants will be introduced to commonly-used controlled vocabularies for digital collections, as well as to XML, OAI, metadata harvesting, mapping, interoperability, and quality, and to a small extent, metadata in the context of Linked Data and the Semantic Web. The course will also cover metadata standards selection, local metadata scheme design, and documentation in the form of application profiles.
