Description: This poster discusses metadata enhancement with Selenium IDE. Digital lifecycle management starts when an item is created (born-digital) or selected for digitization (analog) and continues through image post-processing, metadata capture, derivative creation, and preservation for long-term access. Quality metadata is crucial to implementing reliable, usable, and sustainable digital libraries. Recognizing the role of standardized metadata in digital resource lifecycle management, the University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries actively promote metadata-based digital resource management. The UNT Digital Libraries Division utilizes various tools to ensure metadata consistency and precision across all digital resources and facilitate digital curation activities. This poster illustrates a workflow that uses Selenium IDE to edit large sets of published metadata records quickly and accurately with minimal human intervention.
