The goals, aims, and deliverables of the Metadata Working Group were decided in the kick off meeting by participants. Broadly, we aim to:
* building framework around a moving targeting of defining metadata ‘quality’ and how to support flexibility there in tandem with metadata assessment recommendations
+
* Work collaboratively on a white paper that will be an aggregate of a number of areas of work...
* definitions & metrics for metadata assessment (including some possibilities for that below, please expand/define/redefine as you see fit):
+
** the first being a literature (and tools) review of metadata assessment work so far (current focus of our work) - http://bit.ly/MetadataAssessDraft
** metadata quality as it appears in different contexts (local repository vs harvested index)
+
** then further clarifying for our work metadata assessment metrics and definitions
** record completeness (how much descriptive metadata is enough?)
+
** then building out a metadata assessment rubric
** metadata consistency (internal, within a collection vs external with conformance to common authority sources)
+
** as well as capturing metadata assessment use cases.
** metadata interoperability: a function of quality, completeness, consistency: metadata generated for one specific system/use case needs to be usable in other systems/use cases
 
** How to refine above for:
 
*** value for direct human usage
 
*** value for indirect software usage
 
** use cases for metadata assessment functionalities
 
** tools that exist for metadata assessment - including how to use and understand the results
 
** agile or responsive workflows that involve metadata assessment
 
  
We hope to have a number of metadata assessment deliverables to offer up to the community and larger AIG group at the end of 2016 - in time for the 2016 DLF Forum. These deliverables will be determined and grow out of the Metadata Assessment Working Group interest, in particular, the goals and aims set at the kick off meeting.

DLF Assessment Interest Group: Metadata Working Group

(Metadata Assessment Working Group)

Broad Aims + Description of 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.

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 flurry of interest, activity and discussion around metadata assessment that occurred just after DPLAfest 2015.

Metadata WG Scope & Aims in 2016

The goals, aims, and deliverables of the Metadata Working Group were decided in the kick off meeting by participants. Broadly, we aim to:

  • Work collaboratively on a white paper that will be an aggregate of a number of areas of work...
    • the first being a literature (and tools) review of metadata assessment work so far (current focus of our work) - http://bit.ly/MetadataAssessDraft
    • then further clarifying for our work metadata assessment metrics and definitions
    • then building out a metadata assessment rubric
    • as well as capturing metadata assessment use cases.

See more about the group's goals and discussion on them at http://bit.ly/metadataAssessment

Ongoing Metadata Assessment Working Group Communication

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 Friday, 1 PM Eastern. The call information (including dates and Webex links) can be found below.

We will also have a gathering at the 2016 DLF Forum (attendance to this in person meeting is not required for folks to be involved in this group).

All the work is being done in this Google Drive space: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B74oOQcTdnHjWk51a283bUVta0E&usp=sharing
