Approaches to Building Metadata for Data Curation

Hsueh-hua Chen, Yu Lin, Cynthia Chen


In National Taiwan University (NTU), the Library aims to provide data curation
services for university researchers from different research fields, particularly focusing on those
from small sciences. In this paper, we will first investigate existing metadata schemas used for data
curation services in North America and Europe. Next, we will attempt to develop an application profile,
proposing metadata fields to be applied to data curation services in NTU. Finally, we will discuss our
findings in this study, and take further action to develop a repository platform.
