Metadata Assessment & Quality Twitter Chat

This Twitter chat jointly facilitated by the Digital Library Federation Assessment Interest Group’s (DLF AIG) Working Group on Metadata Assessment and Mashcat, an effort to bring together library technologists and library cataloging & data experts. The topic of the chat was metadata assessment and quality. Namely, how does one approach understanding, analyzing, or getting a sense of their metadata, particularly metadata across multiple applications, formats, schemas, contexts, etc.. Furthermore, how does this assessment inform a shifting idea of metadata quality, as a goal for institutional remediation work, a way to create continuous enhancements for the users of our metadata & metadata schema, or as a data standard with which to build system specifications.Hashtags: #mashcat #dlfaig
