Moving Image Metadata

This postconference workshop at SURA/ViDe, Thursday, March 31, 2005 looks very good. I heard Grace Agnew speak a few years back and found her very knowledgeable and worth hearing. She was (and may still be) involved in the development of MPEG-7.
This all-day postconference workshop will cover the basics of providing metadata for moving image resources and collections. There will be an introduction to basic concepts; a comparative exploration of the new metadata system MPEG-7, PB-Core (Public Broadcasting System's enhancement of Dublin Core), and the native data element set of the Moving Image Collections Project; an introduction to METS (Metadata Encoding & Transmission Standard) and how to use it; and an overview of digital rights management.

The workshop will feature the Moving Image Collections (MIC) Project as an implementation of many of the workshop topics. MIC is a joint project of the Association of Moving Image Archivists and the Library of Congress. Rutgers University, Georgia Tech, and University of Washington are collaborating on its creation and maintenance.

The workshop will be co-taught by Grace Agnew, Rutgers University Libraries; Jane Johnson, Library of Congress; and Dan Kniesner, Oregon Health & Science University Library.
