ETD Workshop Series: Extend Your Research Output With Metadata

This workshop will provide you with resources and tools to help you to create, store, and use metadata to help extend the use of your research outputs.
In this workshop, you will:
  • Understand what metadata is and how it can impact the future usefulness of your research content.
  • Learn what types of metadata you can create (and what metadata is auto-created, and how to check it for correctness).
  • Learn how to use a basic spreadsheet to build an inventory for your ETD package.

About the ETD Workshop Series

Completing a thesis or dissertation is a major milestone for any graduate student, representing the culmination of years of research and writing. But if you only begin to manage its electronic assets when you turn in the completed product, it may be too late. Presented by the University Libraries and the Office of Graduate Education, the ETD (Electronic Thesis and Dissertation) Workshop Series encourages you to think about these issues earlier in your grad studies and provides you with the tools to manage and preserve your digital research.

The ETD Workshop Series offers three sessions, each representing a different aspect of electronic file management. Attendance at all sessions is not required, come to as few or as many as you like.

Registration is required at cmu.edu/graduate.
