Metadata quality, interoperability, standardised access – all these are buzzwords commonly used and agreed on as being vital for resource discovery in the digital heritage sector. But what do these words actually mean? More specifically, what do they mean to us in the context of the EUscreen project?
The ‘EUscreen and Metadata’ document gives a concise overview of how we at EUscreen have devised our metadata schema, what standards it is based on, and how we support the principles of open access. It also offers some illustrative samples of the EUscreenXL metadata model that we use to describe the rich variety of audiovisual content that is shown on our portal.
