The theory of metadata enriching and filtering

The Theory of Metadata Enriching and Filtering is underpinned by four overarching metadata principles, namely metadata enriching, linking, openness and filtering. Thus, by providing a holistic theory and demonstrating the interdependence between these principles, this book develops and presents an emergent metadata theory, which is considered to have wider implications in the way metadata is created, utilised and managed in libraries. This results from the suggested benefits of a mixed metadata approach, where the case was made that a priori (before publication) metadata and post-hoc (after publication) metadata are considered complementary to each other.
