Metadata Services

High quality, customized metadata schemas form the core of many large-scale research initiatives

Using metadata standards and appropriate vocabularies to describe research projects, digital collections, and data resources improves their discoverability. Metadata can also provide key information for reproduction and management of information resources throughout their lifecycle. Consult with Metadata Services on how to identify and describe your research materials to maximize their reach.

We can help you:

  • Selecting appropriate metadata standards for your research projects
  • Creating standardized metadata and templates to ensure collaborators and other scholars can make use of your research.
  • Providing guidance on using controlled vocabularies to assist in uniform description of data, and improve information retrieval
  • Reviewing metadata creation for quality assurance
