Lyrasis Class: Introduction to Dublin Core Metadata

February 12, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This two-hour online class will help you lay some of the basic groundwork needed to implement Dublin Core metadata in your institution. For those familiar with MARC or other cataloging schema we will discuss how Dublin Core can be integrated into your workflow.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the basic Dublin Core elements
  • Identify best practices within the field
  • Describe to administration how Dublin Core metadata can be used efficiently and effectively within the library environment

Instructor: Leigh Grinstead

Leigh Grinstead has more than 20 years of experience working in museums, overseeing collections and conducting collection inventories. During her nearly half decade with the Collaborative Digitization Program (CDP) Leigh’s love of project management, grants work and administration has been well tested. She has extensive experience in digital projects. Her years working with museum collections gave her the drive to be a hands-on advocate for digitization, and her project management experience has allowed her to add discipline to the planning, budgeting, implementation and analysis stages of digitization projects. In addition, Leigh has been responsible for training many library and cultural heritage professionals in the use of digital technologies, including CONTENTdm. Leigh currently conducts in-person, as well as online courses. She has also managed National Endowment for Humanities and Institute for Museum and Library Services grants, including the Colorado Statewide Connecting to collections grant; and is consulting on three others. She is well versed in collaborative techniques and is an enthusiastic and highly skilled professional. LYRASIS is thrilled to have her on staff to support libraries, archives and others as they discover, share and experience the benefits of digitization.

Intended Audience:
This class is ideal for catalogers, volunteer catalogers and those who want to acquire or refresh some knowledge of Dublin Core. It is also ideal for anyone simply interested in knowing more about the schema and how it may be applied in all kinds of digital projects.
Frequency: offered 3 times a year, Summer, Fall & Winter

This class is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access.
