Title: Encoded Descriptions at Face Value
Author(s): Dubin, David
Subject(s): Data
Abstract: Information resources seem to be neither fully abstract universals, nor particular concrete arrangements of matter and energy. The subjects of our metadata statements are therefore elusive. This puzzle presents few practical problems for traditional documents, but applications such as scientific data management call for more precise accounts. The problem of relating fully abstract properties to events in time is explored through a comparison of encoding strategies.
