Laura Smart has a blog called, Managing Metadata. She recently posted about her experiences as a new manager in the Metadata Services Department. The result was Monday training, muffins, and more to the point for us, more resources in metadata.
Here’s a snippet from Laura’s post with links to those videos:
The 4M: Monday Morning Metadata Movies play list.
Caveat: the movies we watched were not always strictly about metadata, but they were on topics relevant to metadata management within academic libraries. They were intended for an audience of paraprofessionals & professionals. And sometimes they were more fun than educational.
Some past 4M videos which weren’t on the YouTube play list:
- Does metadata matter? – by Andy Powell from Eduserve
- Science Commons Scholar’s Copyright Project
- Openness for Life Science Databases
- Basic HTML tutorial
I’m inspired now to resume my quest for videos relevant to metadata workers in academic libraries. Perhaps I’ll even post them each Monday. Or at least on some Mondays. And I don’t promise to bake vegan muffins on Sunday nights.
