    Creating Inclusive and Discoverable Metadata: Practices at Fresno State 


    Presenter: Tiewei Liu, California State University, Fresno


    Abstract:


    Today, it is very important that academic libraries make efforts to increase cultural inclusiveness and cross-cultural discoverability in their metadata services. This presentation introduces such efforts to be made in the new institutional repository services at the Henry Madden Library of the California State University, Fresno, a highly diverse campus with a lot of faculty and students with international background.


    In this presentation, the speaker will share the experiences and best practices in creating inclusive and discoverable metadata in Fresno State's institutional repository hosted by DSpace. This collaborative project involves faculty and students to join in metadata creation and implementing authority control. The presenter will also share the conceptualization for this process. Attendees will learn concepts and methods applicable to metadata creation and management in other settings as well.
