9780081003855: An Emergent Theory of Digital Library Metadata: Enrich Then Filter

An Emergent Theory of Digital Library Metadata is a reaction to the current digital library landscape that is being challenged with growing online collections and changing user expectations. The theory provides the conceptual underpinnings for a new approach which moves away from expert defined standardised metadata to a user driven approach with users as metadata co-creators. Moving away from definitive, authoritative, metadata to a system that reflects the diversity of users' terminologies, it changes the current focus on metadata simplicity and efficiency to one of metadata enriching, which is a continuous and evolving process of data linking. From predefined description to information conceptualised, contextualised and filtered at the point of delivery. By presenting this shift, this book provides a coherent structure in which future technological developments can be considered. * describes the value of Metadata when continuously enriched by experts and users* offers Metadata enriching results from ubiquitous linking * provides reasons for Metadata as a resource that should be linked openly* discusses the power of enriched Metadata when unlocked and filtered for users individually
