Now available in Spanish, this book describes the increasing significance of the concept of metadata since the emergence of the World Wide Web as a major research tool across all fields of study. Metadata, which can be broadly defined as data about data, refers to the searchable definitions used to locate information. This book defines this little-understood concept, explains its importance and potential uses in the networked environment, and describes existing metadata standards in the field of cultural heritage information.From the Publisher:
Spanish-language edition of Introduction to Metadata. Metadata is data about data. The relationship between a data object and its metadata is like that between a book and its library catalogue record. Metadata insures that information can be easily accessed in a networked environment.
