When you deposit material into UDSpace, or provide material for a community manager to deposit, you will be asked to provide metadata. Effective metadata helps your work be findable and usable by others. Don't get sloppy with metadata! It's easier to get it right early on than it is to clean up bad metadata later.
UDSpace metadata uses the Dublin Core Metadata Element set, which is used internationally to describe a wide range of resources. Many internet tools and platforms rely on Dublin Core metadata in order to recognize and display content effectively, in platforms like Google Scholar and beyond. Developing custom metadata schemas in UDSpace communities and collections is not recommended, as it may interfere with your material being displayed correctly.
The metadata fields that you will be asked for are as follows. HTML is not permitted in any of these fields.
