The Illinois Digital Heritage Hub (IDHH) released the IDHH Metadata Best Practices in early 2017 to assist contributing institutions with providing quality metadata to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). This program will guide metadata specialists and contributing institutions how to use these best practices to create and develop quality metadata that functions well in DPLA. The program will be comprised of two parts, the first part will be a presentation of how to create shareable metadata for DPLA, and the second part will be a hands-on metadata walk-through with an in-depth discussion for any questions contributors have. Participants are encouraged to bring any questions that have about participating in IDHH and DPLA, or metadata application profiles and item level metadata creation.

• Introduction to DPLA
• Overview of shareable metadata
• How Illinois metadata functions in DPLA

Questions & Hands-On
• Q&A of metadata functionality in DPLA
• Review metadata and mapping of contributing (harvested) institutions

Desired Outcomes:
Participants will come away with an understanding of how DPLA uses contributed metadata, as well as the importance of mapping and developing shareable metadata. Secondary outcomes include how to use standardized rights statements

Intended audience: Illinois Digital Heritage Hub/Digital Public Library of America metadata providers & interested institutions
