I am new to this discussion and so I may be going back over old
territory with these questions. How are the following two types of
information incorporated into METS records?
1) Local administrative metadata for a digital object -- (e.g. what is
our licensing, when and how did we acquire it, where do we keep it ...
without replacing or mixing with object provider administrative
2) Web services associated with a digital object -- (e.g., link to WSDL
I submitted detailed comments on these two issues as part of the NCSU
comments to DLF. My application area is geospatial & numeric data so
the needs may be a bit out of the mainstream.
METS goes a long way to solving the metadata wrapper issues we've been
dealing with in a data services context--but we could really use the
above two pieces to put METS to work.
