Abstract: This Tech Talk presentation explores METS. The Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS) is an initiative of the Digital Library Federation. Maintained by the Library of Congress, it provides a standard vocabulary and set of data structures for encoding hierarchical digital object content and metadata. METS employs a METS header, a descriptive metadata section, an administrative metadata section, a file section, and a structural map. In this presentation the author explains more about these parts of METS, and discusses how METS may be applicable to digital collections in the UNT Libraries.
