Wait, what's a metadatathon?

It's like a hackathon only it's harder to say... and it's for metadata! We'll be cleaning up metadata, learning tools and scripts to help automate this process, and hearing from Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) experts about how metadata affects end users and their ability to do cool things with collection materials.

Who can attend?

Anyone interested in contributing materials to the DPLA (or in good metadata practices more generally). We’re especially hoping to see archivists and special collections librarians, metadata librarians, and developers. But we welcome any and all party crashers committed to shaping a better information ecosystem.
