Please join us for an overview of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)'s Metadata Application Profile, presented by Gretchen Gueguen, Data Services Coordinator, DPLA. The webinar is offered as part of the joint efforts of the Washington State Library, the Oregon State Library, and the Orbis Cascade Alliance to facilitate a coordinated approach to digital collections in the Northwest.

With funding from the Oregon State Library's LSTA program through June 2017, the Orbis Cascade Alliance is implementing its Dublin Core metadata standards and developing tools for metadata cleanup, training, and support that will be publicly available. For more information, see https://www.orbiscascade.org/digital-collections/.

The Washington State Library recently awarded several LSTA-funded grants to libraries for metadata enhancement and remediation activities.
