Improve the accuracy of your metadata

Turn existing metadata into controlled vocabularies

With hundreds upon thousands of assets pumping through your DAM system, you need healthy metadata that's accurate, organized, and relevant to how users search.

In this week's article, we explore how controlled vocabulary lists, when used correctly, can improve your metadata, as well as how to create them effectively.

Controlled vocabulary lists can help you achieve:

  • Consistent nomenclature: Bring organization and uniformity to your data by controlling which terms, abbreviations, acronyms, and jargon are acceptable.
  • Accurate spelling: Safeguard for errors because even a former spelling bee champ can key in a value incorrectly from time to time.
  • Efficiency: Stop wasting time thinking of tags to include or searching for inaccurately tagged assets.

For tips on working with controlled vocabulary lists and a seven-step activity to convert your existing metadata into a useable controlled vocabulary, read the article!
