Update From Europeana Data Quality Committee (DQC): “And the Quest for Better Metadata Quality Goes On”

From Europeana Pro:

In March 2016 we announced the creation of a Europeana Data Quality Committee (DQC) to work on the various facets of data quality. The Data Quality subject is a Hydra difficult to defeat, but the Committee is definitely challenging the beast – as proven by the work accomplished over the past year.

Topics covered in the update include:

  • Supporting user needs with quality metadata
  • Defining clearer requirements
  • Measuring metadata quality
  • Identifying errors in metadata values
