Discovery & Metadata Services

Discovery and Metadata Services (DMS) specializes in contributing to the development and management of Library discovery systems and enabling access to materials through the creation and manipulation of MARC and non-MARC metadata. We support the discovery and research process through the use of bibliographic databases and knowledge bases. Department members use a variety of schema and standards, contributing to their development and application. We collaborate with stakeholders on metadata needs for new collections and digitization projects, seeking to cultivate a seamless discovery experience for staff and users.
