Title: Metadata requirements for a digital repository to accompany the American Anthropological Society's AnthroSource portal project

Abstract: Digital objects of any kind cannot be identified, accessed, searched, retrieved, exchanged, preserved or archived without the appropriate metadata. In order to implement well designed metadata framework there is a need to acquire and investigate the metadata needs of the different stakeholders (i.e., authors, owners, repository and users), decide which aspects of metadata are essential for what the stakeholders wish to achieve, and how granular they need each type of metadata to be, review the relevant metadata standards, and identify which metadata schemes should be applied in order to best meet the stakeholders’ needs. This paper identifies the features which constitute a high quality metadata scheme, and describes the types and ‘flavors’ of schemes in parallel with the different life cycle phases of the digital object and its different formats and forms in which it will be represented through AnthroSource. Several metadata types and schemes are discussed alongside an example of their implementation in the Open Archival Information System (OAIS).
Description: This is version 0.5 of this paper. The final version will replace the current one in late April 2004.
