Introduction to Metadata

Organisation Getty Research Institute

For those wanting advanced information on metadata and the way in which it allows collections to be discoverable, Introduction to Metadata [Getty, 2016] covers a lot of useful ground.

It includes chapters on:

  • An overview of metadata.
  • Metadata in relation to resources on the web.
  • “Methods, tools, standards, and protocols that can be used to publish and disseminate digital collections in a variety of online venues.”
  • “Options for determining and recording core rights metadata.”
  • “Practical principles for metadata creation and maintenance.”
  • An updated glossary.
