- For more information, including how to apply metadata in bulk, see Using Metadata in the DE.
- You may add any additional metadata that is appropriate. We encourage the use of additional metadata to make your data better understood and more discoverable.
- We encourage the use of metadata on subfolders and individual files in your datasets.
Be sure to include at least 3 subject key words or phrases, so that people can discover your data! Each subject should be its own field (click on the plus next to “Subject”. Do not use a comma-separated list.)
