		METADATA MATTERS 
		================

Wednesday 10 March 1999 (10.00-5.30)
Brunei Gallery, School of Oriental and African Studies 
Russell Square, London WC1

Metadata plays a crucial role in the identification, retrieval, and
management of all digital assets. Yet this vital feature of the emerging
electronic information landscape - the virtual space that we will all soon
inhabit - has for a long time remained largely unknown, disregarded, and
misunderstood. However, now there is a growing consensus amongst
information professionals of all backgrounds that metadata matters.

Generations of librarians have used metadata to catalogue collections of
non-electronic materials. It is thanks to the existence of such catalogues
that any of us can find a book, compact disk, or video in our local public
library in a matter of minutes rather than days, and with a minimum of
foreknowledge or expertise. Although it is less clear if or how one should
catalogue a multimedia CD-ROM or database, let alone an interactive
electronic journal, or even an entire web site, developments with Digital
Object Identifiers (DOI) are beginning to make such an approach possible.

The growing ubiquity of the Internet is encouraging the creation and
distribution of a range of new digital resources - electronic texts,
images, audio, and video files - each of which presents new problems when
considering the assertion of intellectual property rights, implementing
charging models, access restrictions, and the like. Here again, metadata
matters and DOI has a role to play.

This meeting is intended to look at as many aspects of this fundamental
topic as possible - including DOI, the Dublin Core, RDF (Resource
Description Framework) - bringing together expert speakers from a range of
disciplines and industries, to present their experiences of creating and
exploiting electronic metadata. The meeting should be of interest to
anyone concerned with the development and use of digital assets, and will 
provide a vital forum for the interchange of ideas and expertise.
