AMeGA - Metadata Generation Research Project


The goal of the AMeGA project is to identify and recommend functionalities for applications supporting automatic metadata generation in the library / bibliographic control community. The project is being conducted in connection Section 4.2 of the Library of Congress Bibliographic Control Action Plan, that is providing leadership to libraries and other information centers in this new millennium.

The Activity Plan's charge for section 4.2 is to "Develop specifications for a tool that will enable libraries to extract [and harvest] metadata from Web-based resources in order to create catalog records and that will detect and report changes in resource content and bibliographic data in order to maintain those records. Communicate the specifications to the vendor community and encourage their adoption."
