This workshop will provide an opportunity to create live metadata records in The Portal to Texas History. During the workshop, participants will open editing accounts and complete records for patents in our Texas Patents Collection (http://texashistory.unt.edu/explore/collections/TXPT/) using extensive web-based documentation and instructions. Participants will gain experience creating metadata records according to UNT Libraries' standards and using a metadata editing interface. No prior experience is necessary. Participants will be able to use classroom computers with an Internet connection.
