The Future of Enriched,

Linked, Open and Filtered Metadata is a comprehensive and accessible guide to creating

accurate, consistent, complete, user-centred and quality metadata that supports

the user tasks of finding, identifying, selecting, obtaining and exploring

information resources. Based on the author's many years of academic research

and work as a cataloguing and metadata librarian, it shows readers how they can

configure, create, enhance and enrich their metadata for print and digital

resources. The book applies examples using MARC21, RDA, FRBR, BIBFRAME, subject

headings and name authorities. It also uses screenshots from cutting edge

library management systems, discovery interfaces and metadata

tools. Coverage includes:

definitions, discussions, and comparisons

among MARC, FRBR, LRM, RDA, Linked Data and BIBFRAME standards and


discussion of the underlying principles and

protocols of Linked Data vis-a-vis library metadata

practical metadata configuration, creation,

management, and cases employing cutting edge LMS, discovery interfaces,

formats and tools

discussion around why metadata needs to be

enriched, linked, open and filtered to ensure the information resources

described are discoverable and user friendly

consideration of metadata as a growing and

continuously enhancing, customer-focused and user-driven practice where

the aim is to support users to find and retrieve relevant resources for

their research and learning.


practical book uses simple and accessible language to make sense of the many

existing and emerging metadata standards, models and approaches. It will be a

valuable resource for anyone involved in metadata creation, management and

utilisation as well as a reference for LIS students, especially those

undertaking information organisation, cataloguing and metadata modules.
