dc.descriptionDescribing cultural heritage materials is a common challenge in the libraries, archives, and museums community. Cultural heritage professionals must be well trained in order to follow best practices for metadata creation. In the current economic climate, having the opportunity to attend training events is challenging for everyone; however, it may be doubly challenging for members of cultural heritage institutions in states like New Mexico. New Mexico is a geographically large state with few large urban centers and a population density of sixteen people per square mile, in which cultural heritage is maintained by many small and geographically remote institutions. In addition to being far from each other, many of these institutions are also far from the closest cities where more training opportunities may exist, such as Denver, Tucson, Phoenix, or Dallas. Nonetheless, the benefits of using common metadata schemes and practices within the cultural heritage community make it imperative to find new solutions for providing training in new standards.en_US
