2 A centre of expertise in digital information management Agenda Introductions Background Demonstration & discussion

3 A centre of expertise in digital information management Metadata Schema Registry Application that provides services based on information about "metadata terms" (and related resources) "Metadata term" = "unit of meaning" deployed in metadata descriptions Functions might include –Disclosure/discovery of information about "terms" –Verification of provenance/status of "terms" –Discovery of relationships between "terms" support for mapping, inferencing –Pointers to related resources usage in metadata application profiles, guidelines for use, bindings Support for services to human readers, software agents

4 A centre of expertise in digital information management IEMSR project Funded under JISC Shared Services programme: –Phase 1: Jan 2004 – July 2005 –Phase 2: Sep 2005 – Sep 2006 Project partners: –UKOLN, University of Bath –ILRT, University of Bristol –CETIS, Becta as "contributing partners" Building on previous work in MEG Registry Project (JISC/Becta), CORES (European Commission)

5 A centre of expertise in digital information management IEMSR project Primary outputs –Description of requirements –Models for metadata application profiles –Pilot metadata schema registry service –Pilot Web site –Data creation tool(s) for DC & LOM implementers (plus documentation) –Open-source software –Recommendations re policy framework

6 A centre of expertise in digital information management IEMSR project Benefits –Consistency in creating APs –Collaboration between LOM and DC communities –Wider access to/re-use of existing solutions –Reduced duplication of developer effort –Improved interoperability between applications

7 A centre of expertise in digital information management IEMSR: example use scenarios Metadata creation tool accesses machine- readable description of selected application profile Presentation service requires information on selected application profile Content provision service provider discloses application profile Metadata schema developer explores/(re-) uses existing implementation choices Researcher surveys existing usage of metadata standards
