What kind of metadata do we want to use?
There are different types of metadata:
But there are also different metadata standards in use for different kinds of objects and purposes.
We can even re-use metadata from one standard and re-purpose it with another standard. Sometimes it can work well, e.g. MODS->DC; sometimes it doesn't, DC->MODS.
Crosswalks aid in making decisions about how to re-purpose metadata between different standards.
The Getty's Metadata Standards Crosswalk - includes a wide variety of metadata standards
MODS Conversions - mappings and XSLT stylesheets to and from MODS to other standards, including Dublin Core and MARC
