Topic: Lost on the Web. Descriptive Metadata for Images in the Digital Library of Latvia

A digital object without descriptive metadata is a lost digital object – it is on the web, but it is not possible to find and use it. The presentation will focus on the importance of descriptive metadata to ensure that the resources are searchable. The presentation will be based on the experience of creating descriptive metadata for photographs in the Digital Library of Latvia.
