Metadata remains the solution for describing the explosively growing, complex world of digital information, and continues to be of paramount importance for information professionals. Providing a solid grounding in the variety and interrelationships among different metadata types, Zeng and Qin's thorough revision of their benchmark text offers a comprehensive look at the metadata schemas that exist in the world of library and information science and beyond, as well as the contexts in which they operate. Cementing its value as both an LIS text and a handy reference for professionals already in the field, this book

  • Lays out the fundamentals of metadata, including principles of metadata, structures of metadata vocabularies, and metadata descriptions
  • Surveys metadata standards and their applications in distinct domains and for various communities of metadata practice
  • Examines metadata building blocks, from modeling to defining properties, and from designing application profiles to implementing value vocabularies
  • Describes important concepts as resource identification, metadata as linked data, consumption of metadata, interoperability, and quality measurement
  • Offers an updated glossary to help readers navigate metadata s complex terms in easy-to-understand definitions
An online resource of web extras, packed with exercises, quizzes, and links to additional materials, completes this definitive primer on metadata.

Review:

"The second edition of this book represents much more than a serviceable update to the first edition, published in 2008. Zeng (Kent State Univ.) and Qin (Syracuse Univ.) have significantly revised their thinking about metadata construction, application, usability, and sustainability. As a result, the current edition of this seminal resource represents a radical and necessary shift to a richer, more comprehensive analysis of metadata and its uses ... A core reference work for all professionals and advanced students interested in the subject of metadata." --Choice

"This is an impressive, well-written textbook for readers studying metadata. In a field that is steadily growing and changing, readers must keep abreast of the new material that appears in this edition, and not rely solely on the previous edition to inform their thinking. It is by no means an easy transition, though the authors have tried hard to include the relevant background that puts today s ideas in context. They have succeeded in making a complex subject understandable as well as anticipating future developments." --Technicalities

"It is a comprehensive introduction ... giving future information professionals a clear and up-to-date picture of both historical and procedural aspects." --Against the Grain
