Metadata for Researchers Workshop - Matt McEniry

Learning Outcomes:

1. Participants will learn an overview of what metadata is and how it can be used in the description of their data and research

2. Participants will be come familiar with the MetaRaider online client

3. Participants will receive a crash course on the DataCite schema description and how they can create their own records using MetaRaider, Notepad, and any XML editor


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.
