This paper considers what metadata is and its relevance to the library community. A brief look at the MARC bibliographic format as a metadata type is followed by descriptions of the ONIX book trade standard, Dublin Core metadata, Encoded Archival Description, the Collection Description schema and the MARC21 Community Information Format. The paper concludes by considering the future possible use of each metadata type in libraries.
