The tools described in this section are designed to address the entire life-cycle of metadata entry challenges, and together produce a sophisticated metadata ecosystem for the adopting communities.
The training covers two areas: first the tools themselves, how they can and should be used; and over time, some of the more sophisticated facets of detailed metadata and its provenance. Second, the training provides a broad collection of general metadata training resources, that can help beginning and intermediate users understand important features of the metadata creation, curation, and re-use life cycle.
