Thanks for the kind words, Nancy! I think a little nook on the LC
website devoted to Best Practise Guides or any documentation
detailing actual implementation of METS would be extremely helpful to
everybody involved, and I'd certainly be happy to contribute anything
that come out of the OAC Subcommittee.

As far as implementation goes, I think the main challenge for us
right now is to figure out which extension schemas to use. Since the
OAC has quite some legacy MOA2 data, I think the first baby-step step
towards implementing METS could be to just try to make METS do what
MOA2 did. However, already just to take that small step we need to
extend METS at the very least with an Admin Metadata schema /dtd (in
particular technical md and rights). Since the OAC is also planning
to use METS as a discovery tool for records which have multimedia
surrogates (as opposed to the many records which don't), we'll also
have to extend with a Descriptive Metadata schema / dtd right off the
bat.

Thinking about those issues, I read Jerome's post on extension
schema's with great interest. Heck, I'll confess, I read *all* of
Jerome's posts with great interest :-) He doesn't mention any
descriptive md (probably because nobody is going back to the drawing
board for that one) - I'd still be very interested to hear what
implementors are planning to use at this point. Furthermore I'm
wondering whether the Technical MD for Still Images out of Michigan
is based on the NISO draft standard? Could somebody confirm my hunch?
And last but not least here's the absolutely impossible question: Is
there any (tentative) timeline on when a first set of extension
schemas would be released and approved / recommended by the editorial
board?

Cheers,
Guenter
