New Descriptive Metadata Guidelines for RLG Cultural Materials Issued

"This set of guidelines is designed to help contributors to the RLG Cultural Materials database, but a broad audience can also benefit from its clear overview of the daunting concepts and acronyms in the field of descriptive metadata. Written by an expert working group and vetted by a wide community, these guidelines can be used to create or review local best practice in describing collections of unique cultural objects—regardless of the specific metadata standards you use. This document is a complete overhaul of the initial guidelines (last updated September 2003)." Additional information and pointers to the guidelines available here.
