“Metadata for Cultural Heritage Material”
The course deals with the description of data in “metadata”, which is crucial to organize and retrieve digital documents or images used and produced by humanities scholars. It introduces the main standards for the encoding of metadata (Dublin Core, Encoded Archival Description (EAD), TEI-Header, Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS), CIDOC-Content Relationship Model, Europeana Document Metadata, and if wished by the students domain specific standards as Getty Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CWA) etc.) or Model Requirements for the Management of Electronic Documents and Records (MoReq).
Practical examples will cover organizations that are concerned with documentation and information distribution tasks, such as libraries, archives and museums, but also present relevant results from (mainly EU-funded) specialist projects.
