CDI Librarian Presents “Metadata: The Basics and Beyond"

Published: April 28, 2010 by Dan DeSanto

This morning, Sibyl Schaefer from the Center for Digital Initiatives presented “Metadata: The Basics and Beyond" to over 20 staff and faculty of the University of Vermont Libraries. The presentation was hosted by the UVM Staff and Faculty Development Committee and provided a description of metadata fundamentals, practical metadata applications, and possible future uses of encoded metadata. Sibyl provided examples from everyday sources like ITunes, library catalogs, and even the CDI’s own collections. With the popularity of digital collections continuing to grow and collections themselves becoming more sharable, an understanding of how these collections are created, organized, and shared is becoming ever more important in libraries and archives. Thanks to Sibyl for sharing her expertise with the rest of the Bailey Howe Library!
