Presentation describing the ongoing CoRSAL (Computational Resource for South Asian Languages) project, including background on the UNT Digital Library infrastructure and metadata schema, specific fields that have presented issues or areas of discussion for language data records (language, creator/contributor, and relation), and final conclusions about the collaboration so far.
This paper presents a case study of the work carried out by the University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries and the intersection of metadata modeling, metadata input rules and documentation, metadata quality assessments, and technology to empower metadata editors to create high-quality metadata.

Paper describing an analysis of subject representation in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), an aggregate digital library containing more than 8 million item-level metadata records at the time of the study. The findings provide information about the minimum, maximum, and average number of subjects in records from different hubs and hub types, as well as the distribution of unique subject terms across the entire collection.
Article defining ways that metadata records might change (addition, deletion, or modification) and describing a study to evaluate multiple versions of selected records in the UNT Libraries' Digital Collections to observe the types and frequency of various changes.

This dataset contains the results of a survey of quality assurance practices within the field of web archiving and its practitioners. To understand current QA practices, the authors surveyed institutions engaged in web archiving, which included national libraries, colleges and universities, and museums and art libraries. The survey was administered online. It includes the completed responses of 54 participants. The data has been anonymized for privacy reasons. This dataset was used in the "Current Quality Assurance Practices in Web Archiving" paper, available from the UNT Digital Library.

Paper describing the results of initial research to evaluate general information about how records change in a digital library, using the UNT digital collections as a sample set. The analysis looked at several key concepts including the number of records that have been edited, the number of edits per record, the number of editors per record, the amount of change in file size and in completeness (i.e., values in required fields), and changes in access to digital objects.

Datasets used in the presentation, "Towards Building a Collection of Web Archiving Research Articles." The files included here were used to conduct several Machine Learning classification experiments that result in a corpus of scholarly research articles on the topic of web archiving.
