Hello everyone. Make sure you take a look at a. d. m. n.’s post about Gartner’s, Duval’s and Doctorow’s articles. She discusses more of the theory of metadata. I’ll ask you to take a look at this video that explains what metadata is and how you might use it. In fact, you use metadata every day and my not even know you are using it.
Also you may want to view these two tutorials about adding items and adding Dublin Core metadata to the items in Omeka, the program we will be using in Assignment 1. I found them useful.
My discussion starter asks:
1. What are your experiences using metadata? Dublin Core? MODS? METS? Have you used it for work? School? Fun?
2. How was using Omeka for Assignment 1? We got a sneak peek at it in Week 4, how did you like (or didn’t like about) using it?
Here are some links to documentation on the Omeka website:
