USU Libraries’ Cataloging and Metadata Unit has successfully investigated several methods to engage the public to involve them in the creation of metadata for USU’s Digital History Collections. Most, if not all the techniques we have tested have yielded positive results and have improved the relevancy and accuracy of our descriptive metadata. We will give an overview of what we have done and give attendees ideas that they can possibly implement at their own institution.
