Focusing on the challenges and opportunities in working with metadata for unusual types of content, ‘Expand the Horizon: Challenges and Opportunities in Working with Metadata for Unusual Content Types’ will explore the creation, management, and preservation of metadata. This webinar is one of the first from the new American Library Association (ALA) division Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, and Futures, and will be presented on September 23, 2020.
During the webinar, participants will learn strategies and methods for metadata curation and discovery for new and unique resource types. In addition, the presentations will provide attendees with real-life examples of metadata for uncommon types of content and will show them how to employ strategies and methods for long-term preservation and access of metadata for rare types of materials. Upon completion, participants will be able to apply this knowledge in their own future work.
Presented by Nathan Hall, associate professor at Virginia Tech University Libraries, Digital Imaging and Preservation Services, Jasmine Clark, digital scholarship librarian at Temple University, and Monique Lassere, digital archivist at Houghton Library at Harvard University, the webinar is ideal for librarians, project managers, faculty, and researchers.
Registration is $43 for Core members; $59 for nonmembers; and $129 for groups of five or more, including a link to share with others in institution for safe, social-distancing viewing. Additionally, all those who register will receive a link to the recorded session for viewing at their convenience.
