Metadata Samples

In Spring 2013, the MDOR Steering Committee sent out a call for sample metadata records with technical, preservation, and administrative data elements that the public may not typically see. The goal was to provide a useful source of information for archivists and others working with metadata.

The following submissions were contributed by members of the MDOR listserv.  If you have questions regarding the metadata records, please contact the institutions directly.

To contribute metadata samples, please contact the MDOR Steering Committee.
