Seeing Standards

In 2010 Jenn Riley created a collection of 104 metadata standards in the cultural heritage sector. Each standard is briefly described in a glossary and visualized at a large poster. The poster, designed by Devin Becker and entitled Seeing Standards: A Visualization of the Metadata Universe contains an additional categorization of the standards by subdivided facets domain, community, function, and purpose.

Metadata standards

This list contains all 104 metadata standards linked to either BARTOC for knowledge organization systems (thesauri, classifications, subject headings...), to entries from Linked Open Vocabularies for Ontologies, or to a corresponding entry in this format database. A later comparision will highlight differences or combine the categorization of Seeing Standards and the categorization of the GBV format database.
