You've assessed the readiness of your metadata and have developed ideas of what your institution is going to prioritize for cleanup. But how are you going to approach cleanup: locally, centrally, a combination? The workshop, its preparatory assignment, and its follow-up assignment, will equip you to make these decisions.
The workshop is discussion-based and requires a preparatory assignment, active participation, and a follow-up homework assignment.
- Robin Fay, Metadata Analyst
- Connect to this sample metadata set from Pine State University and save a copy to your computer or to your Google Drive.
- Using the Metadata Readiness Checklist and Metadata Cleanup Decision Matrix, identify what needs to be cleaned up and what method(s) you will use
- Using the instructions in the OpenRefine documentation, install OpenRefine on your computer
- Use OpenRefine to clean up a few of the items that are appropriate for local cleanup (you do not have to do them all)
- Come prepared to share your experiences!
- The workshop is discussion-based is so much more worthwhile if everyone is prepared.
- Review the instructions and ground rules, and ensure that you are joining from your own computer and have both a microphone and headphones. The workshop is not a broadcast; it is a discussion.
- Using the system-specific export tools available in the Documentation Center, use the Metadata Cleanup Decision Matrix and OpenRefine to clean up a set of metadata from your institution.
- Share your set with your instructors for comments
- Due dates:
- March 20 by 5pm Pacific
