Repository Librarian and the Next Crusade: The Search for a Common Standard for Digital Repository Metadata

Sunday, January 1, 2006

Abstract

"Metadata is an exceedingly broad category of information covering everything from an object's title and date of origin to information about layout, presentation, and rights. Within libraries and digital object repositories, metadata is the cornerstone of the infrastructure required for exchange and use of information. While metadata standards abound, and acceptance and use of these standards is equally widespread, agreement on a common standard is much harder to find."
