Metadata

A new work from NISO Metadata Demystified - A Guide for Publishers by Amy Brand, Frank Daly and Barbara Myers.
This guide presents an overview of evolving metadata conventions in publishing, as well as related initiatives designed to standardize how metadata is structured and disseminated online. Focusing on strategic rather than technical considerations in the business of publishing, this guide offers insight into how book and journal publishers can streamline the various metadata-based operations at work in their companies and leverage that metadata for added exposure through digital media such as the Web. This exposure is an additional way of sharing information about content. It benefits not only publishers, but also potential readers who seek access to published products and the resource discovery environment more generally.
