Example text

This metadata can be of any type, and the type and depth of this metadata is generally influenced by the main audience(s) for the file format. In addition to file formats with native support for embedded metadata, Adobe has developed the Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) for embedding RDF/XML documents directly into digital files,15 which is gaining increasing support in multimedia applications. Embedding metadata within a content file has the benefit of this metadata travelling with the content as it moves between systems, making it less likely the object will become orphaned or separated from its context.

Every metadata standard is necessarily a compromise. No one standard can be all things to all materials and to all users. 1 An alternate list of factors to consider when choosing a metadata standard UKOLN describes a similar but slightly reorganised taxonomy of factors to consider when selecting a metadata standard: purpose of metadata; attributes of resource; design of standard; granularity; interoperability; support; growth; extensibility; reputation; ease of use; existing expertise. uk/qa-focus/documents/briefings/briefing-63/html/).

Different individuals who might use these guidelines might benefit from different levels of detail and different organisational schemes. No one single document will be the perfect tool for all individual metadata creators, yet it is both possible and worth the effort to attempt to find a happy medium of detail and conciseness that will provide a reasonable manual for use by diverse staff. The Collaborative Digitisation Program’s Dublin Core Metadata Best Practices1 is an excellent model for an appropriate compromise in level of detail.
