Introduction to Moving Image Metadata training course

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.

With this training course, you will learn the requirements of descriptive metadata and how it is used with audiovisual assets in the UK. You will gain practical knowledge around all aspects of descriptive moving image metadata, obtaining the key skills to boost your professional development.
