Dear Colleagues,

Please join us for a* free, one-hour webinar *on metadata aggregation at
scale, and DPLA workflows and our future development in this area.

The webinar will take place *on January 22nd, at 2pm Eastern.  *Read on for
details and registration information.


Metadata is basis of the work of DPLA. We rely on a growing network of hubs
that aggregate metadata from partners, then we, in turn, aggregate the
hubs’ metadata into the DPLA datastore.

As we continue to grow our hub network, we have found the practical matter
of how to aggregate partner metadata and deal with quality control over the
resulting aggregated set becomes our biggest challenge.

The webinar will examine the aggregation best practices at two of our DPLA
Service Hubs, as the basis of a conversation about metadata aggregation
practices among our Hubs. In addition, DPLA has been working on some new
tools for metadata aggregation and quality control that we’d like to share.
We’ll preview some of our plans and hope to get feedback on future
