METS is the Library of Congress' metadata schema for descriptive, administrative, and structural metadata in digital libraries. This workshop is an introduction to METS for complete beginners. We begin by covering how METS differs from MARC and DC metadata schemas and when METS is likely to be the preferred choice. We look at software systems and archives that are already using METS and introduce METS profiles. We will also look at the structure of a METS record, using examples from the locally used Rosetta software, both prior to ingest and and post-ingest. Finally there will be time for extended discussion.
