From metadata creation to metadata quality control: continuing education needs among cataloging and metadata professionals
MetadataShow full item record
This study aims to examine the current state and needs of continuing education among cataloging and metadata professionals regarding metadata creation and management.Using nationwide survey data, the study finds an active interest in pursuing training and education opportunities on a wide variety of metadata-related topics.The survey results indicate, however, that some professional education needs are not being met by the type of training the respondents have received. In particular, there is strong interest in receiving training in topics relating to planning and management for metadata application, such as metadata quality control mechanisms and documentation, as well as training materials providing hands-on, practical solutions and guidance in an implementation environment. The survey also indicates a strong interest in short courses, including online programs, that are affordable, flexible, and practical for professionals in the field.
