Metadata

The Interim report on metadata development in The European Library (TEL) is now available.
The main objective of the metadata workpackage of TEL is to find out which metadata are needed for providing the desired TEL functionality and how this should be implemented or encoded to obtain an integrated, consistent presentation of data obtained from inhomogeneous sources. A second objective is to keep the barrier low for participants to enter collections into TEL. This report outlines the whole metadata development process that should lead to these objectives step by step.
