This workshop will help you understand what metadata is, how it can influence your ETD's impact, and how to create it when submitting your thesis or dissertation.

ETDs and Metadata: Love Notes to the Future

Metadata, simply defined, is data about data, created and stored alongside content. Metadata describes and documents research, data, and publications (such as a thesis or dissertation) to help users find and understand that content.

Understanding the value and uses of metadata, and knowing what you can do to check and improve it, will go a long way to ensuring that your work is discoverable in the future. Send love to future users and yourself by including metadata with your content.
