This chapter will discuss methods information professionals working directly with museum collections can use to create meaningful systems for cataloging. We situate digital humanities (DH) research and gallery, library, archive, and museum (GLAM) work within a broader discussion of metadata practices, using data from a survey and two case studies that discuss embedded metadata and digital curation practices. Overall, addressing the skills and knowledge information professionals can provide for the creation of metadata in museums will highlight an understated facet of interdisciplinary work taking place in DH research and GLAMs work.
