Overview

Priscilla Caplan, one of the nation's leading systems experts, presents the most comprehensive and clearest descriptions of the various forms of metadata, its applications, and how librarians can put it to work. Both descriptive and nondescriptive forms of metadata are defined (including the TEI Header, the Dublin Core, EAD, GILS, ONIX, and the Data Documentation Initiative) and applied to actual library functions. Illustrations show how different forms of metadata look, advantages and disadvantages, and where they're best applied in the library. Geared to librarians who need a solid foundation to understanding and using metadata efficiently, Metadata Fundamentals for All Librarians is the first stop for public and academic librarians, catalogers, and digital and reference librarians in their journey through the metadata landscape.
