Introducing the Metadata Documentation Portal

Introducing the Metadata Documentation Portal Online

Metadata & Preservation (M&P) is happy to announce the forthcoming release of the new ICPSR Metadata Documentation Portal. For the first time, the ICPSR’s metadata standards will be fully available to the public.

ICPSR’s rich and thorough metadata (i.e., information about our data collections that help others discover, understand, and use them) make us unique among data repositories. Metadata creation, enhancement, and quality review is a team effort and involves staff from across all of ICPSR.

The new Portal specifies rules and definitions for ICPSR's metadata practices and is intended to: (a) assist ICPSR staff with metadata entry, especially during curation; and (b) help ICPSR users -- including data depositors and researchers accessing data -- understand how to use and interpret our metadata.

Join the Metadata and Preservation Team for this webinar that highlights the features of the portal, how it can help you provide stronger metadata at deposit, and how it sets up the ICPSR and depositors for future metadata improvements.
