New Minitex MDL Webinar

Especially for those of you who were in my LIBT 2210 Intro to Indexing and Abstracting course, you may want to sign up for this webinar or view the recording later. This updates what we learned in that class.

Moving Forward: New Guidelines for Contributors to Minnesota Reflections
Feb. 3, 2011, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

This webinar will include a walkthrough of the Minnesota Reflections Metadata Guidelines. Participants will learn to use the newly updated Guidelines to create individual records that are searchable and understandable to users of the Minnesota Reflections database. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.

Audience: The session is intended for staff of any Minnesota library, historical society, archive, museum, or other cultural heritage organization that has contributed items to Minnesota Reflections and is interested in a new project, which will use the new Guidelines.
Experience working with the previous version of the Minnesota Digital Library’s Metadata Guidelines is required.

NOTE: We plan to record the webinar and make an archived version freely available to anyone who cannot attend.
