== Introduction to the Metadata Assessment Group within DLF AIG ==
 
  
 
This group is open to anyone who is interested in taking part. There are no minimum or membership requirements, though we hope you’ll take as active a part as you’re able and willing.

The Metadata Assessment Working Group aims to build guidelines, best practices, tools and workflows around the evaluation and assessment of metadata used by and for digital libraries and repositories. The group hopes to offer deliverables and recommendations that digital library and repository users can implement for metadata assessment and metadata quality control.

The group hopes to offer deliverables and recommendations that digital library and repository users can implement for metadata assessment and metadata quality control.
  
This group should not focus on prescriptive recommendations for metadata (using one schema versus another, or comparisons of controlled vocabularies, etc.), but rather how (both functionally and to what metrics) to measure, evaluate and assess the metadata as it exists in a variety of digital library systems. Future work could lend itself to then using that assessment work to decide a pathway for metadata enhancement. This framing is very much influenced by the [https://docs.google.com/document/d/15pmA276_fxShkCEagoloJwCXH89PhrF3qWBgB8xSrag/edit#heading=h.mq4e51njyj6 flurry of interest, activity and discussion around metadata assessment that occurred just after DPLAfest 2015].

=== Goals ===
* Work collaboratively on a white paper that will be an aggregate of a number of areas of work...
+
The goals for 2018, set in our kick-off meeting, include:
** the first being a literature (and tools) review of metadata assessment work so far (current focus of our work) - http://bit.ly/MetadataAssessDraft
+
* Restructure and document the MWG website
** then further clarifying for our work metadata assessment metrics and definitions
+
* Review and revise the Metadata Analysis Workshop
** then building out a metadata assessment rubric
+
* Work towards creating a metadata analysis tools repository
** as well as capturing metadata assessment use cases.
+
* Begin discussion on creating general benchmarks for metadata quality. This area of work may include gathering tools and methods for measurement of metadata quality, defining benchmarks, and establishing a platform for topic discussion

DLF Assessment Interest Group: Metadata Working Group

(Metadata Assessment Working Group)

This group is open to anyone who is interested in taking part. There are no minimum or membership requirements, though we hope you’ll take as active a part as you’re able and willing.

The Metadata Assessment Working Group aims to build guidelines, best practices, tools and workflows around the evaluation and assessment of metadata used by and for digital libraries and repositories. The group hopes to offer deliverables and recommendations that digital library and repository users can implement for metadata assessment and metadata quality control.

This group should not focus on prescriptive recommendations for metadata (using one schema versus another, or comparisons of controlled vocabularies, etc.), but rather how (both functionally and to what metrics) to measure, evaluate and assess the metadata as it exists in a variety of digital library systems. Future work could lend itself to then using that assessment work to decide a pathway for metadata enhancement.

2018 Work

We set directions, deliverables, and goals for 2018 at the 2018 kick-off meeting in January 2018. You can see more about the group's goals and discussion for 2018 at [1]

Goals

The goals for 2018, set in our kick-off meeting, include:

  • Restructure and document the MWG website
  • Review and revise the Metadata Analysis Workshop
  • Work towards creating a metadata analysis tools repository
  • Begin discussion on creating general benchmarks for metadata quality. This area of work may include gathering tools and methods for measurement of metadata quality, defining benchmarks, and establishing a platform for topic discussion

2017 Work

We set directions, deliverables, and goals for 2017 at the 2017 kick-off meeting in January 2017. You can see more about the group's goals and discussion for 2017 at [2]

Goals

The goals for 2017, set in our kick-off meeting, included:

  • Update structure of the Github site created for last year’s Environmental Scan to support expansion and ongoing work including creating mechanism for people to submit updates & feedback.
  • Review and expand list of metadata assessment tools gathered as part of the Environmental Scan. Begin testing tools gathered as part of the Environmental Scan in order to eventually create a repository for metadata assessment tools
  • Create a Metadata Application Profile Clearinghouse that can be used as a community repository for application profiles, mappings and guidelines for metadata.
  • Create a general framework document on how to assess metadata that can be used for the galleries, libraries, archives & museums (GLAM) community.
  • Collaborate with other institutions on metadata assessment and analysis workshop work.

Deliverables


2016 Work

Goals

The 2016 goals, aims, and deliverables of the Metadata Assessment Working Group were decided in the 2016 kickoff meeting by participants. Goals included:

  • setting up and testing the Metadata Assessment Working Group infrastructure & logistics;
  • pulling together resources and ideas for definitions & metrics for metadata assessment, as well as beginning to uncover how one would perform this assessment;
  • generating use cases for metadata assessment functionalities;
  • uncovering tools that exist for metadata assessment, including how to use and understand the results

Deliverables

Get Involved

The Metadata Working Group will primarily communicate through the DLF AIG Metadata Working Group Google Group.

We have a WG call every 2 weeks on Thursdays at 11 AM EST. The call information (including dates and Webex links) can be found below.

We will also have a gathering at the 2017 DLF Forum (attendance to this in person meeting is not required for folks to be involved in this group).

The majority of the work for 2016 was done in this Google Drive space, however, we have a significant portion of our work in our GitHub Organization.

This wiki page will be used to shared static information - meeting times, decided deliverables and goals for the year, etc.
