Metadata Modeling, Creation, Auditing, and Staffing.

Often the Atlanta Metadata Authority gets requests for outsourcing of tagging, cataloging, or metadata creation.  We are happy to assist you with these needs, weather they pertain to mass input into an existing system, or to auditing metadata as part of the migration process to a new system.

But there's a lot of work to do before metadata creation begins in order to make tagging and cataloging work with your DAM or ECM search engine. Our consultants can help you set up your DAM, CMS, ECM, LMS, or other system for success.

Consider: 

Have you outlined the main facets of your metadata models by type? 

Have you decided how you want to handle compound digital files with discrete parts? 

Have you outlined a constant audit for duplicates and incomplete records?  Do you have the staff to support these tasks? 

Do you have a common, agreed upon controlled vocabulary, and the resources to to make sure this is followed? 

Are your documents related to legal permissions, model releases, and other copyright issue to be linked with each image or project?  If so, do you have Access Control Lists that will manage these related files in a user interface context? 

Atlanta Metadata Authority can help you answer these questions and more before assisting your DAM team in finding the right contractor or employee for your tagging, cataloging, and metadata creation needs.  You can contact us on any weekday for more information.
