2Development of CJKDLIChina-Japan-Korea Digital Library Initiative (CJKDLI)October, 2008: The National Diet Library, JapanDiscussion about metadata interoperability, digital archiving, standardization October, 2009: WLIC, ItaliaRepresentatives from 3 countries (Directors & Vice-Directors) agreed about the necessity of the Asian Digital Library Project.June, 2010: The National Library of KoreaContents of CJKDLI Agreement was finally agreed.August, 2010: WLIC, SwedenCJKDLI Agreement was concluded and signed.May or June, 2011: The National Library of China1st CJKDLI Working Group Meeting will be held.
3CJKDLI Agreement ARTICLE 1 Objectives The objectives of the China-Japan-Korea Digital Library Initiative are to provide easy integrated access on the Internet to the cultural and scientific heritage of the three countries, to enable people to discover rich multilingual and culturally diverse contents and to contribute to the academic world.The China-Japan-Korea Digital Library Initiative (CJKDLI) is intended to enrich oriental culture, promote the cultural diversity of Asia and contribution to Asia and world civilization.
5CJKDLI: The Key to Success Make CJKDLI Contents User-Friendly: Easy to Look-up and UseManage CJKDLI Resources User-Friendly: Put Ourselves in the User’s ShoesUltimately, Good Communication Skill/Means is Required for Effective and Efficient Communicating with the User and the Resources
6Communication Medium Metadata With everyday cataloging work, we may have forgotten the important fact that the metadata is also the data.For this purpose, MDR can be the fundamental solution to the problem by ensuring the interoperability between two systems or between information and information.So far, we just have used one standard—MARC--and then applied mapping or metadata crosswalk, but it was not the fundamental solution.
7ISO 11179 Metadata Registry (MDR) -- (1) ISO/IEC specifies the kind and quality of metadata necessary to describe data, and it specifies the management and administration of that metadata in a metadata registry (MDR). It applies to the formulation of data representations, concepts, meanings, and relationships between them to be shared among people and machines, independent of the organization that produces the data. It does not apply to the physical representation of data as bits and bytes at the machine level.In ISO/IEC 11179, metadata refers to descriptions of data. ISO/IEC does not contain a general treatment of metadata. ISO/IEC :2004 provides the means for understanding and associating the individual parts of ISO/IEC and is the foundation for a conceptual understanding of metadata and metadata registries.

12Why MDR? Back to the Basic Classification Concept: Intension (connotation), Extension (denotation)With the recent discussion about semantic Web and ontology, the importance of MDR has once again come to the fore.

15ConclusionCJKDLI should be a better project than another new digital library where the user can access to the digital heritage of the Asia on the Web.CJKDLI will make it possible for the users all over the world to see the Asian culture with the philosophy of Asians.If CJKDLI is able to show “HOW” Asians feel and express differently than Westerners when they see the same color or object, then I think it will be a real success.
