Download PDF Read Online

The purpose of this poster is to provide insight into the processes involved in making a unique fashion research and teaching collection, discoverable in an online environment at Ryerson University. The poster will highlight effective metadata standards and elements, cross-domain metadata uses, metadata mapping and implementation. The key goals of this digital collection are to promote research, teaching and learning at Ryerson University, and to connect with a broader community by building scholarly, online exhibitions. Once the digital collection is finalized, it will be used as a pedagogical tool and it will inspire fashion students and scholars to undertake research into Canada's fashion history since the collection includes many examples from Canadian designers and retailers in addition to international designers.
