Abstract

This session will attempt to give you an overview of the back room detail of building virtual collections. In this half hour I would like to present important issues to consider when building virtual collections. By the end of the session you will have a better understanding of metadata and the important role it plays in resource discovery. Standards are very important and by the end of the session you will have a better understanding of what a metadata application profile is and the role it plays when building your virtual collections.
