"SIPS, DIPS and Trips: How we will know if we've collected enough, or the right, metadata?" by George Blood presented at ALA Annual 2010

"SIPS, DIPS and Trips: How we will know if we've collected enough, or the right, metadata?" by George Blood presented at ALA Annual 2010

Many institutions rely on the Model for their preservation programs. Yet few have built end-to-end solutions. We digitize large volumes of resources, collect metadata and create Submission Information Packets for our digital repositories, trusted or otherwise. Now what? The use of metadata to access those collections is years behind the actual collection of the data. How did we choose our metadata if we never knew what people would need or how it would be accessed? Perhaps we have answered the wrong question, "what metadata shall we collect" instead of "what metadata will users and managers need"? How will we know—did anyone ask? So what does a Delivery Information Packet look like? Will we be able to access our metadata in meaningful ways to aid discovery, to manage collections, and make DIPs users need?
