Meet-up: November 17, 2016 at Chemical Heritage Foundation

Our sixth meet-up will be on Thursday, November 17, 2016, from 3:30pm-5:00pm at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. Featured will be short demonstrations that respond to the following question: “How does your repository generate, refine, and/or transform metadata (technical, descriptive, preservation, administrative) for born-digital archival collections?”

  • Kelly Bolding, Princeton University, will reflect on the role of improvisation (and documenting improvisation) within digital processing and metadata workflows by talking about a practical example where she developed a bash script tool to append missing file extensions while working with a hybrid personal papers collection
  • Cathleen Lu, Chemical Heritage Foundation, will talk about transitioning to linked data by reevaluting and repurposing familiar metadata schemes and the various challenges of linked data ontologies, vocabularies, and data modeling in RDF
  • Katy Rawdon, Temple University, will describe efforts at Temple University to apply collection-level and seed-level metadata to websites captured in Archive-It
  • Julie Swierczek, Swarthmore College, will present “An Assortment of Thoughts on Metadata”
