Digital Library Federation (DLF) on “Metadata During COVID”(A Look at Metadata Projects at 8 Institutions)

From a Digital Library Federation Blog Post:

Digital collections work has changed in a number of ways during the COVID-19 pandemic. For many libraries and archives, this has meant working remotely and shifting toward tasks that can be done online. Within the DLF AIG Metadata Working Group, members have discussed a number of ways that organizations have chosen to increase capacity for metadata, transcription, and other tasks related to digital collections as a way of providing work for employees who would normally work in public-serving positions. This post documents some of those projects and activities.

Metadata projects at these Institutions are Highlighted in the Blog Post:

  • University of North Texas
  • University of Utah Marriott Library
  • Utah State Archives
  • University of Texas at Austin
  • Colgate University
  • Digital Library of Georgia
  • University of Florida
