Metadata implementation applies the tools and principles of metadata design, as taught in the companion course, to evaluate and develop application profiles for metadata schemas in common use. Students will develop and test application profiles in XML and using an open source METS/MODS metadata creation tool, the Rutgers OpenWMS. METS, including administrative metadata (source, technical and rights) will be covered, as well as VRA Core, MODS, Darwin Core, and PBcore, to give students experience evaluating and implementing a range of metadata schemas. Application profiles will be developed using the WMS for a cultural heritage or a research data collection, of the student’s choosing. Adventurous students can elect to do both!
This course is a follow-up to Metadata Design.
