Description

Jemison compares the metadata used by four different digital sheet music platforms. She found that each included different amounts of metadata, as well as different metadata elements. In addition, she determined that the searchability of each platform was variable, finding that in some cases only words in the title were searchable. She concluded that while these platforms are not designed with library use in mind, this does present an opportunity for librarians to contribute to improving not only the metadata provided, but also its searchability.
