"This revised edition of Introduction to Metadata, first published in 1998 and updated in an online version in 2000, provides an overview of metadata: its types, roles, and characteristics; a discussion of metadata as it relates to resources on the Web; a description of methods, tools, standards, and protocols that can be used to publish and disseminate digital collections; and a handy glossary." "Newly added to this edition are an essay on the importance of standards-based rights metadata to the activities of cultural institutions; a section entitled "Practical Principles for Metadata Creation and Maintenance"; and the latest information on metadata harvesting and the role of Google and other commercial search engines in the rapidly evolving field of digital libraries."--Jacket."
