Survey of existing practices
To investigate the current state of descriptive metadata and related workflows in Hawaiʻi, our project team visited with representatives from a number of repositories that hold significant Hawaiian collections. Our conversations revealed that knowledge organization and descriptive metadata protocols are an active area of focus across Hawaiʻi. Additionally, many supported the idea of collaborating across institutions about this topic. Mahalo to everyone for sharing their time and expertise with us!
