Metadata Working Group


The Sunshine State Digital Network (SSDN) Metadata Working Group is responsible for providing standards, documentation, and other supporting material in order for potential and current data contributors to the SSDN DPLA hub to understand and implement the metadata documentation necessary for participation. It provides assistance with training and outreach materials and serves as a contact point for questions about metadata from data contributors.
