Metadata Recommendations, Dialects, Evaluation & Improvement

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

This webinar describes a flexible, multifaceted approach to evaluating and improving metadata collections (in multiple dialects).

The initial goal of many metadata efforts was discoverable data but, like many other elements of data management, the metadata landscape has evolved considerably over the last decade to include new use cases and requirements. The approach that has been developed includes web-based tools for understanding and comparing recommendations and dialects, flexible comparisons of completeness of metadata collections (in multiple dialects) with respect to particular recommendations, evaluation of completeness of single metadata records, identification of specific metadata improvement needs and an open forum for sharing information, experiences, and examples. Recommendations for metadata requirements and metadata improvement needs are discussed and shared.
