Title: Preliminary Recommendations for Shareable Metadata Best Practices
Author(s): Jackson, Amy S.
Subject(s): IMLS DCC Digital libraries Metadata
Abstract: A primary goal of the IMLS Digital Collections and Content project has been to encourage sharing of metadata and participation in aggregating projects. Benefits realized through these activities include increased visibility of the collection, an environment of complimentary resources, and enhanced discoverability of individual resources. In order for these benefits to be achieved, metadata from each repository must be interoperable with existing metadata in the aggregation. Although metadata may be quality metadata in the local context, the records must have certain characteristics in order to be relevant in the aggregated environment.
