Lessons learned from the Illinois OAI Metadata Harvesting project

Timothy W. Cole, Sarah L. Shreeves

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes our experiences over the course of a two-year research and demonstration project designed to test the utility of an aggregation of metadata in the domain of cultural heritage. While the overall outcome of our project is encouraging, our experience suggests that there are wide variations in current practice when it comes to the creation of metadata. These differences affect how well the metadata supports interoperability.
