The effective organisation and retrieval of digital images in a networked environment will depend upon the development and use of relevant metadata standards. This paper will discuss metadata formats and digital images with particular reference to the Dublin Core initiative and the standard developed by the Consortium for the Computer Interchange of Museum Information (CIMI). Issues relating to interoperability, the management of resources and digital preservation will be discussed with reference to a number of existing projects and initiatives.
