FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ingrid Schneider, Assistant Professor at NMSU, is a co-author of the new book, The Metadata Manual: A Practical Workbook. The book was published in June by Chandos Publishing.
Written with Rebecca Lubas and Amy Jackson, faculty/librarians at the University of New Mexico, the book provides basic instruction in the creation of metadata, the descriptive information that makes digital objects searchable. The manual also provides specific information on four common metadata schemes and is intended for cultural heritage professionals who lack the resources needed to obtain formal metadata training
The Metadata Manual was developed from free metadata training workshops conducted by the authors throughout New Mexico and West Texas which were designed to assist small cultural heritage institutions in making their collections available online with minimal investment.
The book is available from Chandos Publishing (http://www.woodheadpublishing.com/en/ChandosHome.aspx), Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. For more information, contact Ingrid Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
