Media Working Group draft metadata guide

This document, prepared in 2010, comprises preparatory work for the LEAP Multimedia Working Group guide to creating metadata for multimedia repository deposits.

The brief for the guide is to produce “a guide for non-experts in how to recognise different classes of item, what metadata should be regarded as essential to each and where to get expert help”.

In order to meet this brief, the group identified metadata schema that seek to describe classes of non-textual items. A selection of these schemas was used as a basis for analysis and comparison to identify distinctive metadata requirements for different kinds of outputs. The schemas used for this comparison were:

I Visual Resource Association (VRA) core 4.0

I Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA)

I Public Broadcasting Core (PBCore) elements

I KULTUR project metadata elements

I Safeguarding European Photographic Images for Access Data Element Set (SEPIADES) core elements
