About

This site and the guidelines within are developed by the Metadata Working Group, which reports to the Emory Libraries Cabinet, a cross-unit body including representation of Directors from the Libraries at Emory, Academic Technology Services, Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS), and works closely with University IT Services and Research Solutions.

The Metadata Working Group includes representation from ECDS, Rose Library, Woodruff Library, Law School Library, and Emory University IT Application Development. Additional stakeholders and sub-groups include representatives from Emory Libraries' Core Systems team, the Pitts Theology Library, the Oxford College Library, the Carlos Museum and Emory’s Department of Art History, who support/utilize shared digital asset management systems and have contributed to the Working Group’s guidelines.
