Love Data Month: Introduction to Metadata and Documentation Online

Many of your day-to-day activities rely on metadata, or “data about data”. From your phone to the library to Google and beyond, metadata, or structured information, is working hard behind the scenes. Metadata help you discover new resources, information and ideas, draw connections between them, and then share what you’ve learned or created with others. Well-documented metadata also lets you preserve and manage your data and resources long into the future. Join Maggie Dull, River Campus Libraries' Director of Metadata Strategies, and Heather Owen, River Campus Libraries’ Data Librarian, to learn more about the basics of metadata, what good metadata looks like, and how metadata best practices can help you in your personal and professional lives.
