This study reviews existing practice for collection level description, as it exists in the library, archival, museum, and Internet communities. It begins by providing a discussion on what the term "collection" means, firstly from the perspective of libraries, museums, and archives, and then taking a look at the more recent meaning of the term as it is used on the World Wide Web. Finally, a detailed look is taken at some of the existing schemes that are used for collection and service description.
