This workshop teaches the fundamentals of library metadata standards and practices from the perspective of designing user interfaces. We cover standard descriptive practices from cataloging and digital collections and how they are frequently implemented. Finally, we will explore strategies for testing the impact and effectiveness of metadata choices on user experience.

Following this session, participants will be able to: 
  1. discuss the impact of metadata standards and practices on design and functionality.
  2. identify strategies for isolating the effect of metadata from the effects of other design features.
