Metadata

"The MD3 (Metadata3) Project takes a different approach to metadata - instead of having to create and implement new systems to handle new types of metadata, why not make new types of metadata work with our current systems?" The plan consists of transforming metadata from one format, say RDF, into another, such as MARC. The other component involves peer to peer (P2P) sharing of the records. Something like the Docster proposal.
