The digitization project of the Vatican Library within the complex relationships between sets of metadata

Dr. Paola Manoni (Vatican Library)


The talk is focused on the metadata schemas involved in the digitization project of the Vatican Library: for long-term preservation strategies as applied to digital deposit collections, as well as for web-publication of images in the context of the digital library. The relationship management in the implementation process of sets of metadata (in their structural representation and semantic meaning of data elements) will be discussed with particular attention to the management implications and the resulting operational capabilities.
