Cataloging and Metadata

Image

Metadata have been used in various forms as a means of cataloging archived information.  Library catalogues used 3×5 inch cards to display a book’s title, author, subject matter, and a brief plot synopsis along with an abbreviated alpha-numeric identification system which indicated the physical location of the book within the library’s shelves. Such data help classify, aggregate, identify, and locate a particular book.
