I entered a search for "metadata education clearing house" (or something close) and got a lot of retrievals from Google, including a site that explained how the MERIC site had moved -- I'd suggest this for a simple start.

Subject: Re: [eduCAT] talking cataloging / MERIC metadata education clearinghouse
I found the link for the MERIC prototype: http://meric.lis.unt.edu/. But it
doesn't seem to be working. I have a vague memory of looking at it maybe a 1
1/2 or 2 years ago. However, I'm not a regular on this list, so I'm sure
someone else will know more.
