This is a useful resource that was a good start towards what you describe
(but a wiki format might offer greater simplicity in terms of expansion/
updating.) If I am remembering correctly it was a response to an ALA
directive in this area.
Welcome to the Metadata and Cataloging Education Web Clearinghouse! There
are currently more than 200 resources that can be used for teaching and
learning in the broad areas of cataloging (descriptive, subject, and
authority using ISBD/AACR2R/MARC) and metadata (DC, specialized standards
such as EAD, GILS, TEI, FGDC CSDGM, etc.). Emerging areas such as
ontologies, semantic web and related areas such as information architecture,
classification, controlled vocabularies, information seeking behavior,
library systems, are also briefly covered.
