Using spreadsheets for metadata creation can create efficiency, since many data elements, like rights statement, are repeated across items. Spreadsheets make it easy to repeat information, through drag-and-drop and copy and paste. Additionally, spreadsheets are great for proofreading because you can scan down rows to easily identify typos, incorrect data formats, and other issues. These templates are provided as a jumping off point to help you create metadata that adheres to PPC Metadata guidelines, and can be used to upload data in bulk to Omeka.
