Metadata management

ZBW specialists for metadata standards and formats in the Metadata Management team work on the integration of heterogeneous metadata for the portal EconBiz.

Our metadata specialists produce mappings for the integration of heterogeneous metadata for the portal EconBiz that provide the basis for the transformation of these metadata.

The metadata team offers support in all questions regarding metadata standards for the development of the ZBW’s information systems, in cooperations and third-party-funded projects.

The metadata management team analyses metadata for statistical purposes and the data quality management.

The metadata management team is your contact for data deliveries to and from the ZBW. The ZBW offers metadata of its own holdings for re-use.

We offer our expertise in:

  • knowledge of metadata standards in libraries and special standards for various purposes and types of resources (e.g. research data, structural metadata for digitisation, reference management formats etc.)
  • knowledge of cataloguing codes, frameworks, authority files and vocabularies, persistent identifiers, markup languages and semantic markup.
