Title: Tracking Metadata Use for Digital Collections
Author(s): Knutson, Ellen M.; Palmer, Carole L.; Twidale, Michael B.
Subject(s): IMLS DCC Digital libraries Metadata Digital Collections Interoperability
Abstract: In this poster we outline the types of institutions, metadata schemes, and materials contained in the NLG digital collection projects. It should come as no surprise that MARC and Dublin Core are the most often used metadata schemes in these projects, and that academic libraries make up the majority of the institutions involved in creating digital collections. However, we found it interesting that whether or not a project was collaborative, and not the type of material contained in the collection, seemed to influence what metadata scheme was chosen. From the baseline information gathered for this poster we can begin to understand the evolution of metadata issues within and between projects over time to inform the development of useful and usable collection aggregations.
