Date: 6 June 2017

Time: 10am to 5pm

Location: Learning on Screen, 77 Wells Street, London, W1T 3QJ

Presented by Joel Eaton

Introduction to Moving Image Metadata will introduce what metadata is, and explain why archivists and cataloguers need it. You’ll be introduced to different schemas for moving image metadata and descriptive metadata, and learn to map metadata across different systems with practical exercises. We’ll highlight the value of ontology, and focus on ‘metadata in practice’, looking at pragmatic approaches to metadata and management systems.

The course also includes a follow up online workshop, delivered after course completion so you can refresh your knowledge.

We encourage attendees from underrepresented groups particularly those from BAME (Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic) backgrounds or those with a disability. We also particularly encourage attendees from right across the UK.
