Charleston Conference, Charleston

The increasing number of providers and consumers of content metadata, coupled with the use of different DTDs and exchange protocols, demands that publishers' platforms serve as advanced metadata hubs. This presentation looks at Atypon's experience of their own publishing platform as a metadata hub, touching on such issues as authority, ownership, and distribution. The talk de-mystifies a complex technical subject to help information professionals from all areas of the spectrum understand exactly what is involved, and what the issues are for the future.
