heya all; i heard somewhere that the US Library of Congress (or some large association of librarians in the US or something) reccomends 17 (i think) essential pieces of metadata that should be used when filing stuff. my understanding is that it was the librarians themselves making a contribution on how things should be labeled/captioned when put into a database of whatever description. i checked their site and nope, all about US history, nothing about metadata. so, my first Q to these forums, which i have only recently joined, is does anyone have a vague notion of what i am talking about, or was i way too trashed when the topic came up in conversation? any help appreciated.
