The following document is the detailed user guidelines on how to use and fill in the Material Culture Ethnography Metadata Schema (MCEMS), which was developed for the Endangered Material Knowledge Programme (EMKP). MCEMS is intended to record the metadata for digital objects that were created as part of ethnographic research recording material culture, living heritage, cultural practices, and different forms of knowledge. Its aim is to aid the preservation of ethnography-specific information, facilitate archiving for future re-use and accessibility, and increase the online findability and presence of ethnographic data and research.
