*Attention Colleagues: There are only 5 spots left in this workshop. 
Registration will close Monday morning.*

DPLA and the DLF Assessment Interest Group (AIG) Metadata Assessment 
Working Group invite you to register for a full-day Metadata Analysis 
Workshop following the DLF Forum in Pittsburgh this fall on October 26, 

This full day workshop will introduce library, archive, and museum 
metadata practitioners and technologists with the basic skills and 
knowledge needed to assess metadata quality using data analysis tools. 
Workshop participants will be introduced to the Metadata Assessment 
Framework developed by the DLF AIG Metadata Working Group. Using this 
framework as a guideline, participants will be taught the basics of 
using several tools to harvest, analyze, and remediate metadata, both 
for a local and aggregated context. The workshop will close by helping 
participants strategize ways to bring these tools back into their daily 
workflows and continue to train others they work with to do the same.

*Cost: $25*
Audience: Cultural heritage metadata practitioners or technologists.
Prerequisites: Some experience with command line and basic metadata 
concepts will be presumed. Workshop registrants will receive an email 
with some materials to brush up on command line before the workshop. 
Basic familiarity with xml-based metadata is also presumed.


  * Workshop attendees should leave the workshop with:
  * Ability to recognize and diagnose common metadata quality issues,
    both locally and in an aggregated environment
  * Knowledge of common indicators of metadata quality such as
    consistency or use of standards
  * Basic working knowledge of several tools for harvesting, analyzing,
    and remediating data
  * Recommendations for the using what they’ve learned to train others
