’Marketing’ with Metadata - How Metadata Can Increase Exposure and Visibility of Online Content.

23.03.2006


This document has just been released by the PerX Project (a project funded by JISC, as part of the UK Digital Repositories Programme).



It is an advocacy document, aimed at content providers of various kinds (for example - journal publishers, professional societies and database providers and owners) who may have descriptive data (metadata) available for the actual content they produce. It introduces the various benefits of sharing metadata, in standardised and reusable ways, with other websites. It explains how sharing metadata can result in increased exposure and visibility of the actual content, whether that content itself is freely available, available to subscribers, or available via pay-per-view.

The document is intended primarily for a non-technical audience who may require an overview for decisions regarding the best means of exposing metadata. It may also be of interest to anyone with an interest in digital repositories.


It looks at exposing metadata via harvesting (OAI Repositories, Static Repositories), via distributed searching (Z39.50, SRU/SRW, other emerging standards), and exposing content for syndication (RSS).

It provides illustrative case studies and links to technical specifications which will provide useful starting points for those tasked with actually implementing the exposure of standardised metadata. Common questions are answered.

If you wish to increase the visibility and exposure of your content in the online environment, then read this document.

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
