One thought on “Content and Metadata

  1. I agree that there should be a balance in how much metadata is included and how prominent it is in the exhibit. As a visitor to an digital collection or exhibit, I would want the content to be front and center, but I would also want it to be obvious where to click or look for additional data. It is helpful to look at the many different ways sites present metadata, as well as the instances where sites leave out metadata that should be included.
