Title: The Continuum of Metadata Quality: Defining, Expressing, Exploiting
Authors: Bruce, Thomas R.
Hillmann, Diane I.
Keywords: metadata quality
Issue Date: 2004
Publisher: ALA Editions
Citation: In Metadata in Practice, D. Hillmann & E Westbrooks, eds.
Abstract: Like pornography, metadata quality is difficult to define. We know it when we see it, but conveying the full bundle of assumptions and experience that allow us to identify it is a different matter. For this reason, among others, few outside the library community have written about defining metadata quality. Still less has been said about enforcing quality in ways that do not require unacceptable levels of human effort.
