Unlocking digital data collections across the sciences

The project was intended to develop a collaborative initiative to formulate a common workflow and generate a cost model for metadata production for digital data collections in two discrete scientific domains at Yale University. Because of staff changes, the Social Sciences Library was unable to participate so the Kline Science Library has been working with the Peabody Museum on developing metadata and workflow models.
