Working Group Updates

December 2016

A subgroup of the Metadata Working Group is now an official project team supporting the Emory Libraries Digitial Library Program (DLP) initiative. The Metadata Implementation Working Group, one of seven DLP project teams, is analyzing and normalizing current state technical, preservation, and rights metadata to establish guidelines for the new Hydra/Fedora 4 repository. The team is also investigating the use of RDF to assist with our transition to Fedora 4, and reviewing Core Metadata for any revisions needed since its first release in 2015.

May 2015:

The Metadata Working Group, comprised of representatives from the Libraries at Emory, the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship, University IT, and in consultation with Emory campus stakeholders, has released v.1 of its Descriptive Metadata Guidelines for Digital Collections.
