Metadata Design

Instructor: Grace Agnew
Dates: July 3rd to 28th, 2017
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175


This course focuses on the tools and technologies involved in metadata
design. A significant benefit of metadata is that its flexibility for
customization to the needs of the organization and the resource. This
course provides the tools needed to design metadata to support the needs of
users and collections. the Students will learn the tools of metadata
design, beginning with the data model that abstracts the meaning and value
of the collection, the registry, which formalizes the data model into
workable metadata elements, to standardizing the values that populate
metadata through ontology and vocabulary development. Students are also
introduced to metadata expression, through the collaborative design of an
XML schema and through use of XML and RDF to document metadata instances
from the schema. The course concludes by discussing how to apply these
tools to existing metadata schemas. At the end of the course, students will
be able to effectively design metadata to support their community’s and
institution’s information needs.

This course has a follow-up: Metadata Implementation.
