With our training course you’ll learn the requirements of descriptive metadata and how it’s used with audiovisual assets in the UK. You’ll gain practical knowledge around all aspects of descriptive moving image metadata so you can gain key skills to boost your professional development.

Time: 10am to 5pm

Presented by Joel Eaton
Introduction to Moving Image Metadata will introduce what metadata is, and explain why archivists and cataloguers need it. You’ll be introduced to different schemas for moving image metadata and descriptive metadata, and learn to map metadata across different systems with practical exercises. We’ll highlight the value of ontology, and focus on ‘metadata in practice’, looking at pragmatic approaches to metadata and management systems.
The course includes lunch on the day and a follow up online workshop, delivered after course completion so you can refresh your knowledge.
We encourage attendees from underrepresented groups particularly those from BAME (Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic) backgrounds or those with a disability. We also particularly encourage attendees from right across the UK.
