METS Workshop: The Basics and Beyond
Organized by ARL, June 28–July 2, 2010, in Washington DC
Washington DC—The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Statistics and Measurement Program is offering a second, five-day workshop entitled METS: The Basics and Beyond to be held in partnership with Nancy J. Hoebelheinrich and Rick Beaubien of the METS Editorial Board. This workshop is aimed at people who work in digital and physical libraries and would like to gain knowledge and skills for organizing the many and disparate components of individual digital resources.
Although continuous, this hands-on workshop consists of three modules, any of which may be taken independently:
- The first module (Monday) offers a thorough introduction to METS including an overview of all of its high level features.
- The second module (Tuesday and Wednesday) delves deeply into the heart of METS: the flexible mechanisms it provides for encoding, organizing and representing digital content of various kinds and for different purposes.
- The third and final module (Thursday and Friday) explores strategies for implementing METS in a production environment, and reviews existing tools that can facilitate implementation.
