This is a starter-page for the DLF Metadata Support Group!

Metadata is hard. The Metadata Support Group aims to help. This is a place to share resources, strategies for working through some common metadata conundrums, and reassurances that you’re not the only one that has no idea how that happened. If you're coming here with a problem we hope you'll find a solution or a strategy to move you towards a solution!

Read more here about the group's formation and affiliation with DLF.
