SimplyE: Modifying Metadata

Scheduled Dates
Course Details
Course Description

In SimplyE, metadata is generated using more than one source. The initial metadata is retrieved from the e-resource vendor in the form of an OPDS feed. Library staff can then modify it further within the Circulation Manager.

Both the Library Manager and Librarian roles can modify a title's metadata and its classification. In addition, any questions or concerns about titles can be seen in this section.

In this class, participants will be provided with their own Circulation Manager with pre-loaded collections to work with. Participants will modify metadata, including classification, and discuss how patrons can identify metadata issues for library staff.

Learning objectives for this session include

By the end of the session, the participant will be able to:

  • Use the OPDS catalog to find and download titles.
  • Modify metadata.
  • Hide titles.
  • Review how complaints are submitted and how to find them.
