“Choose Your Own Adventure: A Metadata Assessment Tool for Oral History Projects” Webinar Recording Now Available!

Tue, 03/21/2023 - 12:46

Since 2013, the Oral History Association Metadata Task Force (MTF) has developed tools for archivists and other practitioners to describe oral histories in their collections and to make informed metadata choices for legacy and new projects. In a DHPSNY webinar, the MTF guided attendees through their metadata assessment toolkit, a process meant to help both new projects set up quickly with descriptive rigor, and offer longstanding projects a structured way to address missing pieces to their metadata puzzles. The toolkit offers a holistic way of thinking about metadata that moves away from technical lingo and toward a shared understanding of what is useful to know about oral histories.
