LIDO Training: Mapping (online), May 30, 2023, from 9 am to 11 am.

If you want to learn more about the LIDO (Lightweight Information Describing Objects) metadata schema, now is your chance again! The NFDI4Culture Consortium's Standards, Data Quality, and Curation Task Area (Task Area 2) cordially invites you to attend a free LIDO training session (online) on May 30, from 9 am to 11 am.

The metadata schema LIDO (Lightweight Information Describing Objects) was developed to provide object data for publication. Descriptions of collection objects can contain a wide range of information relating to the physical object, the indexing, and the digital image. LIDO provides a structure for this and serves many collections as a basis for providing information on cultural objects, e.g. in the German Digital Library (DDB) or in Europeana.

In this session we will look at how to create a LIDO mapping. In a mapping, a concordance is made between elements of different data models. For example, in a LIDO mapping, the fields of a museum's or library's database can be mapped to the corresponding LIDO elements. We will also address the question of how to generate LIDO data from your database.

The training is intended for all interested parties and especially for those who would like to create a LIDO mapping, e.g. for building a LIDO-compatible acquisition database or for preparing a data export to portals.
The event will be held in German.

We look forward to a lively participation!

If you have any questions, please contact us at: lido-feedback(at)sub.uni-goettingen(dot)de.

The event will be held by Barbara Fichtl from the Lower Saxony State and University Library in Göttingen.
