Metadata for Researchers Workshop - Matthew McEniry
List 2-3 Learning Outcomes (based on ACRL Framework Knowledge Practices or Dispositions http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/ilframework) :
1. Attendees will be introduced to what metadata is and how they can use it in their research.
2. Attendees will be shown TTU Library’s metadata resources.
3. Attendees will participate in exercises in metadata description including examples from humanities to sciences to statistics.
Abstract: This workshop will give an introductory outlook on what metadata is for researchers and how it’s used. The goal for this session is to increase the understanding of what using the term “metadata” in a data management plan or otherwise really means. This session will also look at other resources that the TTU Library has either created or provided through the libguide. Finally, the workshop will culminate in a few exercises in which the participants will go through examples of research and describe them using the given metadata schema.
Audience: faculty & graduate students
