Metadata is data about data. That explanation seems simple and complicated all at the same time. Surely, there must be more to the word? There is, and this workshop will give you a crash course in how metadata can be used for your research and collections. Texas Tech librarians have developed an online client called MetaRaider to make a complicated task into one that everyone can do. Participants in this workshop will learn the purpose of metadata, how it’s used in description, how to tailor their own metadata using MetaRaider, and become familiar with the personnel and resource available at the library that can specifically help with metadata.
