Hi Laufer, all,

As promised, I've been out asking an expert on meta-data types to look at
the document and provide some insights on the different type of meta-data
we should consider for the BPs. His reply, from a data preservation point
of view, follows. I've also included him in Cc for further discussion.

Cheers,
Christophe

Hi Christophe,

Apologies, this email skipped my attention for a while.

The 3 most significant metadata types are (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metadata_standards, which refers to NISO
http://www.niso.org/publications/press/UnderstandingMetadata.pdf)
* descriptive metadata
* structural metadata
* administrative metadata
>From there, you could distinct e.g. preservation metadata within
administrative metadata.

Beware that there are different opinions on such types of metadata, as
explained here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metadata#Metadata_types.

Many thoughts after a quick look at the document that you refer to:
* its viewpoint is different than the preservation viewpoint, leading to
another type of categorisation.
* I would replace “Use” by “Access”. Given the web-scope, you may not say
anything on usage other than someone accessing it.
* Using the same reasoning, I wonder whether you can make any assumption on
the broker. In that case, the metadata types for Search should contain
-ANY- kind of property imaginable. I’m thinking whether e.g. context is
represented. In SOA environments there are brokers that allow searching on
a specific API/service. This would make all metadata under “use” also
relevant for “search”.
* In general, the overview lacks a clear scope, leading to an unlimited
amount of thoughts, questions, etc.

Best regards,
Maarten

Hi René, Maarten,

I remember one of you once explained me that there are many types of
meta-data that are used for different purposes. In this document, Laufer
started to list some of them but there are surely many others we miss:
https://www.w3.org/2013/dwbp/wiki/Guidance_on_the_Provision_of_Metadata

Could you please point me to a doc that lists all the meta-data type, and
eventually tell me what you think of that document if you have enough time
to have a look at it ?

Groet,
Christophe
