The principle of metadata enriching
The emergence of a mixed metadata approach raises the issue of addressing the key principles of simplicity versus diversity. For this new paradigm, a new Principle of Metadata Enriching is suggested. This refers to the process of enriching existing simple, a priori, expert structured, metadata with diverse, post-hoc, socially-constructed metadata. Metadata enriching indicates a continuous process of user metadata co-creation, and thus metadata is never complete. It is an ongoing process of enriching.
