DDI is a metadata specification for the social and behavioral sciences. This workshop will focus on the use of DDI-Lifecycle by data librarians and archivists as a means of managing data deposited to their systems and supporting the use of DDI by their research community. The first day of the workshop will provide information in a lecture format providing an overview of the DDI model and its applications and identify specific structures within DDI that support data management, data discovery, data processing and study development. The goal is to provide a sense of the internal structure of DDI and how it relates to the data and metadata lifecycle of research data.
The second day will provide hands-on work with creating DDI content from the perspective of the librarian/archivist and from the perspective of the researcher. The first perspective focuses on transferring existing metadata into DDI and then leveraging the DDI structure to support data management and discovery. The second perspective focuses on the capture of metadata at the point of origin and use of managed metadata to support quality control and communication during the research process.
Who should attend? Data librarians and archivists involved in data management and researcher support. Social Science researchers interested in metadata and data curation.
