Product description

The introduction of RDA and the semantic web are significantly changing information organization. Keep your skills and services up to date with this start-to-finish primer. This new resource covers traditional, domain-specific practices as well as metadata's broader approach. Key topics include: information resource attributes; metadata for information retrieval; metadata sources and quality; knowledge organization systems; the semantic web; books and e-books, websites and audiovisual resources; business and government documents; learning resources. Author Philip Hider also examines the introduction of RDA, the integration of library cataloging with the semantic web, and pays specific attention to increasingly prevalent digital practices. Information Resource Description is a vital book for information professionals learning to apply the most current metadata tools and skills in practice. It is also essential reading for LIS students taking information organization courses.
