Metadata basics: describing research data

Metadata is information that describes a resource (i.e. data about data). When used effectively, metadata helps with usability, discovery, and storage of research. After completing this workshop, participants will be able to articulate what metadata is and how it is used, select a metadata standard that best suits their project and discipline, and select an appropriate tool for creating and maintaining metadata. Case studies and examples will be used to demonstrate metadata application and impact.

The lecture portion of this session will be from 10:00 - 11:00am. We'll have extra time after for those who want to stay to ask questions.

Pre-requisites: None; this workshop is for beginners
