  • British Library publishes Collection Metadata Strategy
    Friday, 2015-10-23

    The Library has developed a Collection Metadata Strategy, which unites strategic discussion of the Library's collection metadata activities and identifies the necessary foundational principles, priorities and governance structures by which management of our metadata assets can be improved to deliver wider business benefits and support the delivery of our core purposes and programmes.

    A core objective will be the transformation of our collection metadata from a passive by-product to an active enabler offering greater efficiency, interoperability and utility.

    Unlocking the Value - The British Library's Collection Metadata Strategy, 2015-2018 is supplemented by the Collection Metadata Strategy Roadmap, 2015-2018.
