    Abstract

    'Metadata' has become a fashionable and overused term, but nevertheless provides a useful label within the library world for description of digital resources. It is an important part of the activity being undertaken to impose some order on the explosion of material available across networks. This Briefing examines metadata within the context of network information management and describes some of the growing number of projects and services which are now using metadata for resource discovery in a networked environment.
