Title:Metadata for the Information Multiverse
Author(s):Gilliland, Anne J.; Willer, Mirna
Subject(s):archival description
bibliographic description
information multiverse
semantic web
Abstract:In today's Information Multiverse there are pressing societal, ethical and educational, as well as intellectual reasons why, rather than simplifying and reducing or streamlining, we should actually be complexifying and increasing our efforts to generate metadata that identifies, collocates, contextualizes, authenticates and enfranchises. Such metadata should not only draw upon, but should also simultaneously incorporate re-thinking of fundamental and long-established bibliographic and archival principles in light of the plural and increasingly post-physical nature of the Information Multiverse. Our ongoing research is modeling an Information Multiverse approach to metadata by identifying ways in which these complexified principles can be embedded in local, community and global (i.e., web) metadata infrastructures. Their underlying references to common concepts additionally open up the possibility of interoperability and re-use, and, outside the silos of professional/information fields, linking and navigation.
