Presentations
 
Metadata en masse: Conducting Data Cleanup Across “Snowflake” Image Collections
Jasmine Burns
Cornell University, United States of America
 
This presentation outlines the author’s work plan for designing and implementing a large-scale metadata cleanup project across Cornell Library’s digital image collections. This includes a demonstration of the tools used for field identification and analysis, as well as an explanation of the methods used for constructing a metadata application profile.
 
 
Wikidata for Digital Preservation: Technical Metadata for file formats, software, and configured environments
Kat Thornton, Kenneth Seals-Nutt, Euan Cochrane
Yale University Library, United States of America
 
We introduce WikiDP, a portal built on top of Wikidata, that allows users to curate structured data in the domain of digital preservation. Yale University Library is syndicating technical metadata related to software and file formats from Wikidata as machine-actionable data to power preservation workflows.
 
 
Improving metadata quality: working towards an ethically automated workflow
Mahria Lebow
Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research, United States of America
 
Metadata quality is paramount to the success of digital collections. This presentation will look at the process of updating and augmenting an established manual data entry workflow for an institutional repository, leveraging python and regular expressions to improve metadata quality.
