Postgres, EML and R in a data management workflow

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

Metadata storage and creation of Ecological Metadata Language (EML) can be a challenge for people and organizations who want to archive their data. A workflow was developed to combine efficient EML record generation (using the package developed by the R community) with centrally-controlled metadata in a relational database. The webinar has two components: 1) a demonstration of metadata storage and management using a relational database, and 2) discussion of an example EML file generation workflow using pre-defined R functions.
