A Decade of Data: Learning resources minimal metadata application profile; Wednesday 17 May 2023

    Dear all,
    ‘*Learning resources minimal metadata application profile*’: online,
    Wednesday 17 May 2023 at 15:00-16:00 UTC. Registration is now open!
    Are you interested in making  training materials or other learning
    resources that you have created or found more easily discovered in
    common search environments ? Have you ever wondered what key descriptors
    for  these materials could help you and others better find them? Now
    that  a minimal metadata set has been recommended, what mechanisms could
    be used to implement the set within different search environments, such
    as a catalog or portal at your institution?
    The ‘Education and Training on Handling of Research Data’ RDA Interest
    Group has worked with a group of international experts to develop a
    minimal metadata set for describing learning materials. This set
    identifies key characteristics of learning resources that matter to:
    – Content creators and adapters who want to describe the resources they
    create for others to better find and use;
    – Providers of catalogues and registries of learning resources;
    – Institutions that publish learning resources on their websites to
    provide information about the resources in their collections.
    In this one-hour interactive webinar, the group will present application
    profiles of the minimal metadata set and how they have been implemented
    in selected catalogues. Participants will have the opportunity to
    discuss the various perspectives, needs, and motivations for
    implementing the application profile. Participation is free but please
    register in advance to attend.
    Register here:
    We look forward to seeing you on 17 May!
    With best wishes,
    Amy, Laura and Kati
    Co-chairs, RDA Interest Group on Education and Training on Handling of
    Research Data (ETHRD-IG)
