Nancy and Lisa,

 

Thank you for your help. I will continue to use the METS primer and I’m also starting to use the “METS Schema 1.7 Documentation” in my day-to-day metadata work.

 

The XML editor I’m using is Stylus Studio, but I’ll exploring using oXgen also.

 

I think some online training tools would be great. I suppose that increasingly smaller libraries (like ours) will be using METS, but won’t be members of DLF.

 

Thanks again,

 

Chris

Thanks for that plug for the METS Primer, Elizabeth.  

 

Speaking for the Editorial Board, we don’t have any plans at the moment for further METS training in the US at a face to face event, but could certainly consider it for the Fall DLF Forum for instance or some other event if there is interest.  We are planning to produce some online training tools in the near future, but don’t have plans solidified enough to give you much of an idea of what or when those would be available.  Thanks for your interest though – it’s inspirational or at least motivational!

Nancy

In lieu of training, the METS Primer (1) is a great resource. If you’re interested in working in XML directly, I recommend the oXygen (oxygenxml.com) editor.

Good luck!

I’m interested in getting some in-depth METS training.

 

Does anyone know if there are any plans to offer some METS training in the U.S. anytime soon?

 

Thanks,

 

Chris
