Universities need to consider metadata as a means of managing and providing access to information resources. A considerable commitment is required to assess standards; train staff and utilise metadata appropriately. The University of New South Wales Library has made a start and has embedded metadata in Library Web pages, created metadata for subject gateways – MetaChem and AVEL, and is generating metadata for the Australian Digital Theses Project.
