More about football

I have to say that I am not a football girl. For that matter I’m not even a sports girl so I was so incredibly grateful for the incredible work done by Metadata Wonderings. She wrote out really nice descriptions of subject headings that we may need for our indexing project on football. She not only wrote out what things were but what type of players would be involved in them, when they might happen, and a couple of ways to differentiate between similar looking actions. There were still a couple of times I was left looking a picture and wanting to enter something obscenely generic like “Two large men crash on football field” but it was so so SO much easier thanks to her work. I also learned more about football than I thought I ever wanted to know, but as this project shows, knowing information about different genres is good as we may be called upon to index activities we know nothing about.

  1. I agree! The guidelines for the subject element were great. In one of my images, I couldn’t locate who was holding the football, so I had no idea what was happening in that particular play. I ended up having to guess to the best of my ability!
