Metadata creations tools are in general surprisingly hard to use, often lacking basic features such as auto-complete, spell-check, and data validation. In addition, there is little research on how they could be made better and more efficient. The ideal metadata creation tool would make it easy to create robust, consistent metadata, and difficult to make a mistake. This presentation will examine research on data entry interfaces, look at the state of the art in metadata creation tools, and demonstrate some features that make metadata creation tools work well.
