Uncovering Hidden Insights for Information Management: Examination and Modeling of Change in Digital Collection Metadata

University of North Texas, United States of America

This paper reports a study that measured and categorized metadata change in the Texas Patents digital collection’s descriptive metadata, which is based on the local version of Dublin Core. A comparative analysis of change resulting from multiple metadata editing events allowed authors to identify the most frequently occurring categories and subcategories of change, as well as metadata fields that are edited most often. Findings and implications, as well as future and concurrent research are discussed.
