The workshop VRA Core: An Introduction to Metadata for Cultural Materials, will take place at the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) Training Center in New York on May 9, 2011 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Elisa Lanzi, a visual arts information specialist, will present the workshop, which is part of the “Metadata May” events. Workshop participants will gain an understanding of the conceptual model of the VRA Core; learn how the VRA Core relates to other metadata standards; experience diverse cataloging situations for cultural materials; and be able to apply the basic elements of VRA Core practice. Focusing on the decision-making process for creating descriptions, the workshop agenda includes real-life examples, presentations, and group exercises. The instructor will gather workshop participant questions and topics of concern ahead of time. For more information, visit the METRO web site.
