The course initially examines the needs that the metadata should cover, and their expressive power. Afterwards, it covers deeper the use of the general metadata standards, the Diblin Core and the Qualified Dublin Core, and the formulation of application profiles, and how to apply them for detailed description of library information. It analyses the FRBR model, as it can be applied to libraries.
At the end, it examines other library metadata standards, giving specific emphasis in MODS.
The course is using the laboratory to provide practical training to the use of the standards.
The course Encoding Standards of Library Metadata aims to familiarize the students with the description models that are used and the library metadata standards for resource description, and to provide practical experience in their use.
With the successful completion of the course, the student will be able to describe documents in Dublin Core and in MODS, and to map descriptions from and to Dublin Core and MODS.
