This workshop will look at the major uses of metadata, how DDI supports them, and how to use this information to determine what parts of DDI are important to your work. Following this we will focus in on the first three areas which are of particular use to libraries, archives, and individual researchers. We will explore various decision points regarding version selection, depth, and breadth of coverage. Finally we review the available tools noting any special functions or limitations. The attendee should gain an understanding of what DDI can support as well as how to integrate the use of DDI into their data/metadata management work.
