Metadata Standards


In this video, Maggie Kruesi, Folklife Specialist at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, discusses the importance of having metadata standards, what standards allow you to do, and how they can be useful in your work. Kruesi also provides a list of institutions and organizations that have created standards for metadata that are available for public use. This video supplements Kruesi's SHN session, "Appraisal and Description Metadata" given at the 2015 Post-ATALM SHN Workshop, held at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC on September 13-15, 2015.
