Metadata and Documentation: From Private Data to the Linked Open World In-Person

Good metadata and documentation give you the power of longevity to your research data, not only for your own projects, but also when it comes to sharing it for others to use. Kayleigh Bohémier, Science Research Support Librarian, will talk about the basics of good metadata and documentation. In the second half, Katherine Thornton, CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow for Science and Social Science Data Curation, will share examples of the power of metadata in Wikidata related to Yale Library collections. Katherine will introduce tools that can be used to work with metadata and present a case study of how wiki technology is being used to document and describe library file format workflows.
