How are today's librarians to manage and describe the
ever-expanding volumes of resources, in both digital and print
formats? The use of XML in cataloging and metadata workflows can
improve metadata quality, the consistency of cataloging workflows,
and adherence to standards. This book is intended to enable current
and future catalogers and metadata librarians to progress beyond a
bare surface-level acquaintance with XML, thereby enabling them to
integrate XML technologies more fully into their cataloging
Building on the wealth of work on library descriptive practices,
cataloging, and metadata, "XML for Catalogers and Metadata
Librarians" explores the use of XML to serialize, process, share,
and manage library catalog and metadata records. The authors'
expert treatment of the topic is written to be accessible to those
with little or no prior practical knowledge of or experience with
how XML is used. Readers will gain an educated appreciation of the
nuances of XML and grasp the benefit of more advanced and complex
XML techniques as applied to applications relevant to catalogers
and metadata librarians.
