This course is designed for graduate students with an interest in the description and retrieval of online information resources using metadata. While integrating descriptive cataloging principles into the use of metadata schemes, students will explore a variety of communication and content standards, including MARC, Dublin Core, EAD, TEI, and XML. The use of metadata in digital collections, including institutional repositories, will be highlighted. Interoperability, metadata harvesting and repurposing, maintenance of metadata, and data dictionary construction will also be covered.
