Metababble: A Clash of Metadata Cultures
Poster and short paper presented at JCDL09, Austin, Texas.
A tension exists between making digitized resources available to users quickly and providing detailed, item-level metadata and semantic markup that make those resources more discoverable. The Our Americas Archive Partnership (OAAP) project, funded by IMLS in the fall of 2007, is facing these challenges as the project progresses. This poster presents a summary of our approach and future thoughts about descriptive approaches for digital resources.
