The Case for Implementing Core Descriptive Embedded Metadata at the Smithsonian
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2011.8.1.art00028  Published OnlineJanuary 2011

The long-term goal, as established by the institutional strategic plan, to digitize collections at the Smithsonian Institution along with the increasing need to share data and increase access to collections has made it essential to establish institution-wide metadata standards, including those for embedding metadata. This paper documents the ongoing process of establishing core embedded metadata within the institution through the work of the Smithsonian Embedded Metadata Working Group (EmDaWG), which is pan-institutional in nature and includes museums, libraries, archives, and research institutes. The focus of the working group described within this paper is the creation of core embedded metadata fields for use in still images.
