Abstract

This study reviews existing practice for providing collection level descriptions, as it exists in the library, archival, museum and Internet communities. It originated from discussions at MODELS workshops [MODELS], where the need for a review of different approaches to collection level description was identified, particularly in the context of phase 3 of the Electronic Libraries Programme [ELIB]. The study was taken forward by UKOLN as a MODELS recommendation.
