SCHEMAS aims to provide a training platform for metadata schema designers.
The main Objectives are:
- To guide and educate metadata schema implementers about the status and proper use of new and emerging metadata standards.
- To promote good-practice guidelines for adapting multiple standards or metadata modules for local use in customised schemas.
To meet its Objectives, SCHEMAS will build a knowledge base and prepare training material, based on a Metadata Watch and a Standards Watch, focussing on mapping the scopes of various standardisation activities in this area. Both of these activities will feed into a Web site, the focus of which will be a database of metadata schemas, a Metadata Registry.
