    • 1. Co-funded by the European Union , through the Comenius Programme Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 2. Metadata
    • 3. Structure
      • Definition of Metadata & Examples
      • Metadata Types
      • Schemas
      • Specifications
      • Standards
      • Application Profiles
      • Dublin Core & IEEE LTSC LOM
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 4. Definition
      • “ Metadata is structured information that describes, explains, locates, or otherwise makes it easier to retrieve, use, or manage an information resource” *
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching * NISO (2004) Understanding Metadata. Bethesda, NISO Press
    • 5. Example
      • E.g. Books
        • Title
        • Author
        • Year
        • Subject (Math, History, etc)
        • No of pages
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 6. Example / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching Title Abstract Keywords
    • 7. Metadata is everywhere
      • We can have metadata on:
        • HTML documents, digital images, books, museum objects, metadata themselves
        • Collections, services, physical places, people, institutions, abstract “works”, concepts, events
        • And more…
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 8. Metadata Types (1/2)
      • Descriptive : Facilitates discovery and describes intellectual content
      • Administrative : Facilitates management of digital and analog resources
      • Technical : Describes the technical aspects of the digital object
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching http://www.lib.umd.edu/dcr/publications/best_practice.pdf
    • 9. Metadata Types (2/2)
      • Structural : Describes the relationships within a digital object
      • Preservation : Supports long-term retention of the digital object and may overlap with technical, administrative, and structural metadata
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching http://www.lib.umd.edu/dcr/publications/best_practice.pdf
    • 10. Purpose
      • R esource discovery,
      • O rganize electronic resources ,
      • F acilitate interoperability & legacy , resource integration ,
      • P rovide digital identification ,
      • S upport archiving & preservation
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching * NISO (2004) Understanding Metadata. Bethesda, NISO Press
    • 11. Metadata Elements
      • Each information resource is described by using specific data items
      • These data items are called Elements
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 12. Metadata Schemas
      • “ A metadata scheme is a sets of metadata elements designed for a specific purpose, such as describing a particular type of information resource” *
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching * NISO (2004) Understanding Metadata. Bethesda, NISO Press
    • 13. Metadata Specifications
      • Stable and widely adopted Metadata Schemas can evolve into Metadata Specifications
      • The majority of implementers in a particular domain or industry adopts them
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 14. Metadata Standards
      • If a standardization organization recognizes a Metadata Specification , then it may become a Metadata Standard
      • Dublic Core for Educational resources (DC-ed) and IEEE LOM are dominant examples for educational purposes
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 15. Application Profiles
      • Metadata Standards or Specifications can be adapted or “profiled” to meet community context-specific needs
      • Then, they are called Metadata Application Profiles
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 16. Adaptation
      • By imposing restrictions and modifying vocabularies, definitions or elements of the original (base) standard
      • Aim : Increase interoperability with base standard and not to break interoperability with existing applications
      / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching
    • 17. Evolution / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching element element element element element Metadata Scheme Used by one publishing house Used by many publishing houses Metadata Specification Metadata Standard Adopted by Standards’ Organization
    • 18. Evolution / 61 Intro to metadata, educational metadata, and metadata-based searching Profiled Refined Adapted Used in specific community E.g. Publishing houses of medical books Metadata Application Profile Metadata Standard Metadata Specification
