Enhancing the Quality of Metadata: Modular Approach to Digital Resource Lifecycle Management Metadata
Metadata describes a digital item, providing (if known) such information as creator, publisher, contents, size, relationship to other resources, and more. Metadata may also contain "preservation" components that help us to maintain the integrity of digital files over time.

- Display Note: Abstract: The UNT Libraries participate in a number of collaborative and in-house digital initiatives. In managing digital resources, the Libraries utilize locally qualified Dublin Core-based descriptive metadata along with detailed technical and preservation metadata elements. Metadata quality is influenced by both local and collaborative requirements. Because poor metadata quality can result in ambiguity, poor recall and inconsistent search results, the UNT Libraries use quality assurance mechanisms during metadata creation and employ specialized metadata analysis tools after the files are ingested into digital archives. Templates, validation, controlled vocabularies, analysis tools, graphical reports, and more are explained in this presentation.
