Librarians in Training: Metadata for Digital Objects
New

Thu 13 Jun 2019

Description

This course will look at how to create metadata for online catalogues and digital libraries, concentrating on special collections material. We will be using TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) as the most suitable metadata standard for the description and presentation of manuscripts and rare books in a digital environment. The course will focus on the descriptive element of TEI, but will also touch on the possibilities for transcription, translation, and the presentation of digital images. There will be a taught element (1 hour) followed by the opportunity to have a go at creating a description in TEI yourself.

Target audience
  • You must be a staff member of one of the Cambridge Libraries (College, FDL, Affiliated, Institution or UL) to attend this session.
