Title: Using Metadata Standards to Support Interoperability

Abstract: How can you describe a digital learning object so that it can be found, managed, reused, and preserved? Descriptive information can be used to facilitate resource discovery and identification. The information can also be administrative in nature. These data support resource management within a collection. Metadata can also be structural. Structural metadata describe how the components of complex learning objects are bound together. Of the three, descriptive metadata for digital objects has received the most attention and is the focus of this paper.
