In the company of strangers: challenges and opportunities in metadata implementation

Maxine Brodie

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution


    This paper examines some important policy level issues which impact on metadata implementation at the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. These issues present challenges and opportunities for the establishment of a new "digital" Library identity and for the forging of new "digital" relationships with client groups and with other cultural, educational, government, and commercial institutions. Such issues are usually highlighted through analysis of discrete or related local, national or international projects. The paper provides a complementary perspective by taking, instead, a single, whole-of-organisation approach.
