      Metadata Concept
 Data about data,background information
(Catalogue information about digital asset)
 Data, Information, Knowledge
 Metadata schema to classify resources
 Metadata analysis to provide structure
 and organization for the contents
 Metadata Standards
  − Dublin Core
  − CDWA , others

                                              16
     ASPICO Organization
