EPIC: A Proposed Model for Approaching Metadata Improvement

Description: Abstract: This paper outlines iterative steps involved in metadata improvement within a digital library: Evaluate, Prioritize, Identify, and Correct (EPIC). The process involves evaluating metadata values system-wide to identify errors; prioritizing errors according to local criteria; identifying records containing a particular error; and correcting individual records to eliminate the error. Based on the experiences at the University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries, we propose that these cyclical steps can serve as a model for organizations that are planning and conducting metadata quality assessment.

Ethnicity as a Moderator Between Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Suicidality in a Clinical Sample

Description: Poster discussing the role of ethnicity in the relationship between posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suicidality.

These findings do not explain increased suicidality in non-Latinx clients, but is congruent with the Latinx health paradox, the contradictory finding of better health outcomes for Latinx despite known additional disadvantages.
