Digital Humanities and Metadata: Linking the Past to the Digital Future

Marina Morgan, M. J. Suhonos, Fangmin Wang


The purpose of this poster is to highlight cross-domain metadata uses, metadata
mapping, and success measures at the Ryerson University Library and Archives. The Library is highly
involved in Ryerson-based proposals for interdisciplinary projects, especially in the Digital Humanities.
Designing an online environment for the preservation and analysis of illustrated texts for children
and Canadiana is a collaborative effort that involves cataloguing, metadata mapping, digitization,
and website design.
