Brief overview of the ‘Goobi Metadata, Mappings and Rulesets’ course
The ‘Goobi Metadata, Mappings and Rulesets’ course will mainly be of interest to qualified librarians and Goobi users whose main work involves extracting and compiling important information from digitised works. As well as a detailed examination of everyday tasks using the Goobi Metadata Editor and the options available to fine-tune your work, this course focuses on rulesets. Using a text editor (or the Goobi Ruleset Editor), participants will learn about the configuration options available to meet specific metadata requirements and how to use them – from ruleset configuration, catalogue mapping and MODS mapping through to metadata presentation in the intranda Viewer, our own presentation system for digitised works.
The selected course topics are based on our experience of working with Goobi for over ten years as well as the feedback we have received from more than forty establishments where the program is in everyday use for a wide variety of projects. Nevertheless, the list of topics can always be adapted to meet individual requirements, and we can even incorporate your own materials and working methods.
The ‘Goobi Metadata, Mappings and Rulesets’ course generally covers the following topics in detail:
Explanation of basic conventions and terminology
Explanation of the interaction between different components used for metadata processing in Goobi
Goobi Metadata Editor
Detailed metadata processing using the latest version of the METS Editor
Accessing the image stack from the METS Editor
Preparing metadata for subsequent online presentation of digitised content
Importing and mapping data from individual data sources using batch imports
The course lasts around six hours plus breaks. The morning session is mainly theoretical, while the afternoon session is more practical with a focus on the individual needs of participants.
All course participants have their own work station with access to Goobi so that they can practise what they have learned and perform a range of digitisation project tasks. A book scanner is also provided (linked to Goobi) to ensure that participants gain experience of dealing with realistic situations.
There is no need to bring along your own computer. intranda will provide all the documentation and technical equipment needed, as well as free WLAN access. Your course fee includes catering.
The maximum group size is ten.
