Radler, Barry
Apr 29, 2015
The increasing availability of research and other data via the internet has spurred interest in and the need for better documentation of such data. The Open Data movement gaining momentum among federal funding agencies, academic libraries, and professional journals is also contributing to a recognition that good documentation and metadata are essential to distinguishing the quality of research datasets and facilitating their discovery and use in an online environment of ever-expanding information. This presentation will provide a primer in metadata use and metadata standards like the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI). It will also include reflections by the presenter on his particular DDI use cases, as well as his experience hosting the 3rd annual North American DDI Conference. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.
