This virtual workshop will offer an introduction to descriptive metadata for digital special collections. We will explore the purpose of metadata, some common metadata schemas and standards, and frequently-used metadata elements for item-level description. The focus will be on practical advice for creating high-quality metadata records. The workshop will include hands-on practice with creating metadata; participants are encouraged to bring an item from their own collections to describe.
