Metadata is data that provides additional context or information about other data. Metadata can be any additional data that assists to define or describe the attributes of a particular asset. It is the basis for all search functionality within SHARE.
Most metadata fields are editable. You have the ability to create, delete or edit metadata in SHARE.
Any user with the permission to enter Metadata (Admin, Curator, Instance Admin) will be allowed to enter or remove metadata from the single asset view of share.
While in Edit Mode: Enter or Return key saves the entry
Esc key cancels any changes and reverts the data back to the original value(s)
“Checkmark” and “X” will do the same respectively
Bulk Adding Metadata
On the Multi Asset View of SHARE, select the assets you would like to apply metadata to and enter the metadata value in the appropriate metadata field or fields.
Users who do not have permission to create or edit metadata will not see the fields in SHARE that have no metadata values.
