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].

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.

2017 Work

We are currently setting directions, deliverables, and goals for 2017 - to be decided at the 2017 kick-off meeting See more about the group's goals and discussion for 2017, our kick-off meeting information, and comment/add your thoughts at [1]

2017 General Timeframe

  • 12 January 2017, 11 AM EST: The 2017 Metadata Assessment Working Group Kick-off Meeting. 2017 goals and deliverables will be decided at this meeting. See [2]
  • [rest to be filled in after kick-off meeting]
  • November 2017: Meeting at DLF 2017 in Pittsburgh (attendance not required to be a part of this group!), as well as next round of planning for metadata assessment meetings and 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.
