In this workshop, you will learn- 


*	what metadata is and what metadata does 

*	metadata's role in the lifecycle of digital objects and
representations 

*	how to make metadata human and machine readable 

*	how to make your metadata understandable to others in the networked
environment 

*	how discourse and practice communities, including libraries, can
customize metadata to fit their needs and still facilitate interoperability

This all day workshop will introduce you to the basics of metadata. In this
primer you will learn metadata's role in resource discovery, management, and
interoperability. We will cover the basics questions. "What is metadata?"
"What can metadata do?" "How does XML figure into this?" These questions and
more will be covered through interactive lectures and hands on computer
lab-based mini-projects. The primer will be team-taught by members of the
community of the Information School of the University of Washington and
other select instructors who actively work with metadata. 

Plan to stay on for the Dublin Core 2003 Conference
<http://dc2003.ischool.washington.edu/> & Workshop at which researchers,
system implementers, metadata practitioners, administrators, and others
wanting to engage in a dialog to advance the discourse and practice of
metadata research and applicationson share information related to
implementing metadata in libraries, large organizations, personalization and
portals, and metadata creation tools.
