Developing a Canadian Metadata Profile for Institutional Repositories
Canadian Association of Research Libraries
This presentations discusses the results of an analysis of the metadata gathered from Canadian Association of Research Libraries' institutional repositories. The metadata was found to be incomplete and inconsistent. As such, the presentation recommends the development of a metadata profile that identifies required and recommended elements.
This was presentation given at the CARL sponsored workshop entitled, Institutional Repositories: The Future is Now. The Workshop was held on October 13, 2004 in Halifax, Nova Scotia as a preconference day for the Access 2004 conference.
