The University Digitisation Centre (UDC) at the University of Melbourne has been working towards implementing the Embedded Metadata Manifesto since its inception in 2009. This paper follows the evolution of the in-house information systems developed by UDC to incorporate the embedding of descriptive metadata as part of a standard digitisation process. Central to this has been the development of novel ways of accessing metadata from the various library catalogues via their public interfaces. Challenges arising from the re-use of catalogue metadata in non-library systems may provide additional insights as libraries attempt to re-invent the catalogue.
