Why metadata is useful (1)
Digital preservation strategies - migration,
emulation, technology preservation, etc. -
all depend - to some extent - on the
creation, capture and maintenance of
suitable metadata:
"Preserving the right metadata is key to
preserving digital objects" (ERPANET Briefing
Paper, 2003)
"It's all about metadata" (Cedars project
manager, ca. 2000)
