Free Friday Forum: Metadata for Digitization, Part 3: VRA Core (Visual Resources Association)
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 9:00am - 10:00am
About the Event
This one-hour session will explore VRA Core, a metadata schema that describes cultural works, including sculpture, paintings, pottery, textiles, architecture, portraits and manuscripts. VRA Core captures metadata about the physical works themselves as well as their digital representations. VRA Core is widely used by the cultural heritage community, but this session may also interest anyone who wants to learn about a metadata standard well-suited to describing works of art. Attendees of this presentation should have a basic understanding of metadata and Dublin Core. This free workshop runs 9-10AM OR 1-2PM on February 20, 2009 and offers 1 hour of CE credit. Registration is required.
