Snow Presents at Digitization ConferenceAugust 19, 2016
Dr. Karen Snow, Assistant Professor and Ph.D. Program Director at Dominican University’s Graduate School of Library and Information Science, gave two presentations at the 2016 Digitization Conference. This year’s event took place on Thursday, August 18, and Friday, August 19, on Florida State University’s Panama City campus. (There was also a preconference workshop on August 17.) The conference was intended for any library staff or employees of historical organizations who are involved with digitization. It included sessions appropriate for both novices and those with more knowledge and experience. Topics ranged from developing selection criteria for which documents an organization digitizes, to detecting copyfraud in digital archives. Dr. Snow’s sessions are below.
- “Crash Course in Dublin Core”—covers the different versions and elements of Dublin Core, which is becoming increasingly popular worldwide for incorporating metadata into digitization projects
- “Get to Know MODS”—introduces attendees to the unique features of Metadata Object Description Schema, which allows more detail than does Dublin Core but is not quite as complicated as MARC
