Subject: RE: Web Clearinghouse for Metadata Materials

Olivia (and other Educatters),

Thank you for asking for the input.  Indeed, this is a promising
activity!  I believe that this is an excellent beginning point for a web
clearinghouse for metadata materials that Anita has developed.
Congratulations, Anita!  In addition, I look forward to Marcia's work on
Metadata Basics Package in near future.

Here is my initial "wish-list" to your excellent work on a web
clearinghouse for metadata materials.  I would like to see more
attention given to the new developments, new experiments, examples,
newly emerging issues, etc.  Can we provide a "What's New" section, for
instance?  I would like to see the expansion of and the refinement to
the "alternative metadata schema."  If the "alternative metadata schema"
is retained as one section, I would like to see it, at least, with a
prominent emphasis given equally to the traditional methods (AACR/MARC,
subject headings, library classification schema).  The only place I see
these "alternative metadata schema" are stated, for example, is under
the item 10 in the Background Notes, i.e., in the third URL you have
provided.  Thank you, again.
