Abstract

This paper presents a case study of the work carried out by the University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries and the intersection of metadata modeling, metadata input rules and documentation, metadata quality assessments, and technology to empower metadata editors to create high-quality metadata. Further, the examples illustrate how each of the pieces has informed the development of the others. The goal of the paper is to provide a cohesive overview of how documentation, information organization, metadata, and technological infrastructure function together in large digital collections to address multiple needs.
