METS Workshop: The Basics and Beyond

Organized by ARL, January 10 – 14, 2011 in San Diego, CA

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Statistics and Assessment Program and the Digital Library Federation, a program of the Council on Library and Information Resources, are offering a third, five-day METS Workshop: The Basics and Beyond to be held with Nancy J. Hoebelheinrich of the METS Editorial Board. This workshop is aimed at people who work in digital and physical libraries and would like to gain knowledge and skills for organizing the many and disparate component parts of individual digital resources.

Course Description

Although continuous, this hands-on workshop consists of three modules, any of which may be taken independently:
  • The first module (Monday) offers a thorough introduction to METS, including an overview of all of its high level features.
  • The second module (Tuesday and Wednesday) delves deeply into the heart of METS: the flexible mechanisms it provides for encoding, organizing, and representing digital content of various kinds and for different purposes. It also looks at tools that can facilitate the implementation of METS and how their use may affect encoding decisions.
  • The third and final module (Thursday and Friday morning) explores strategies for implementing METS in a production environment, and provides participants with the opportunity to strategize about the implementation of METS within their own environments. Several in-depth case studies from institutions using METS in production environments will be presented.
