Core Metadata Elements: Guidelines to Promote Consistency and Access at TAMU
MetadataShow full item record
In 2018, a working group was formed at Texas A&M University Libraries to propose policies that would ensure the quality and consistency of descriptive metadata in the Libraries’ new DAME (Digital Asset Management Ecosystem), which consists of multiple repositories. This presentation will describe the process that it used to identify a “core” set of metadata elements for all resources that would be stored within the DAME, and their recommendations regarding three levels of “fullness” for metadata records, as well as issues encountered in recommending metadata schema and controlled vocabularies and standards. Finally, it will describe challenges for the future and plans to address them.
