Making Metadata: Students and Scholars Enriching Digital Collections

Wednesday, March 14 | 2:50PM–3:40PM | West Prefunction
Session Type: NC12
Brown faculty and students are working with library staff (metadata specialists and digital humanities staff) to make detailed page- and image-level metadata for books in digitized special collections. This metadata will be incorporated into the Brown Digital Repository. We'll discuss the goals, process, and tools with which this is accomplished as a model for digital repository enrichment, special collections dissemination, and the incorporation of digital methods into a conventional classroom.
