SobekCM METS Editor : Introduction

About the METS Editor

This application is used to view and edit METS files for digital resources which will ultimately appear under the UFDC technology. This allows users to edit nearly all of the possible data fields for an item, and update data for an existing item.

When this application is installed, the extension .mets is associated with this application. Once installed, you can open or edit METS files using this application by clicking on the file in the windows directory.

There are several default templates installed with the application. Each template can present a very different look. A template dictates which elements to show and, in the case where there are several different formats available, which format to use. The template also determines how the exposed elements are grouped. Finally, templates can also set defaults and possible values.
