Credit Where Credit is Due: Metadata!
Accurate metadata is critical for any profitable recording industry model. Most of today’s commercial recording projects are “born digital,” requiring a new paradigm for how projects are documented, distributed, and archived. This presentation demonstrates the Library of Congress funded multitrack project that created CCD (Content Creator Data), a standardized schema, data dictionary, field set, and free studio collection application for gathering the technical, descriptive, and participant information associated with recording projects. CCD can provide the dynamic, end to end documentation necessary to connect the dots and facilitate e-copyright, e-commerce, and archiving.
