Workshop: “Past History, Digital Future: Indiana DPLA Metadata”
This workshop is for those interested in providing greater access to their unique, locally hosted digital archival collections through inclusion in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and/or Indiana Memory. The presenters will guide participants in structuring existing metadata to conform to DPLA and Indiana Memory standards and the training will be geared towards the needs of archival institutions. This session will also be tailored to the content management systems in use by attendees, so whether you use CONTENTdm, PastPerfect, or another content management system, facilitators will provide tools to help you unveil your archives to the world.
