The effective management of networked digital information - including resource discovery, the management of access based on rights information, long-term preservation, etc. - will increasingly rely on the effective development and use of systems that can collect and use appropriate metadata. This paper will outline an approximate typology of metadata formats and discuss the importance of metadata interoperability from the perspective of selected European metadata initiatives - including the BIBLINK, Cedars, DESIRE, MODELS and ROADS projects.
