Even if you’re not aware of it, many of your day-to-day activities rely on metadata, or “data about data”. From your phone to the library to Google and beyond, metadata, or structured information, is working hard behind the scenes. Metadata helps you discover new objects, information and ideas, allows you to draw connections between them, and also preserve and manage that information long into the future. Join us to learn more about the basics of metadata, what good metadata looks like, and how good metadata practice can help you in your personal and professional lives.
To celebrate Love Data Week the library is hosting a series of hands-on workshops to help you feel the data love. Join us the week of February 11th through 15th. Workshops are open to the entire University of Rochester community.
