At its best, bibliographic metadata can help researchers drill down into detail to find subsets of larger collections based on dates, topical coverage, authorship, and other facets, though there can be interpretive and analytic pitfalls in some of the assumptions that we bring to this metadata. This primer on the metadata used to describe HathiTrust resources will provide insights, caveats, and, ultimately, useful approaches to navigating and making sense of bibliographic metadata for researchers who build and/or compare collections for analysis. We’ll provide hands-on opportunities to slice and dice collections along bibliographic parameters and invite you to bring your use cases to workshop!
