  • Description

Today, more and more database companies and digital projects are using XML (Extensible Markup Language). Library professionals -- especially technical service librarians, metadata librarians, system librarians, and library webmaster -- who want to stay current, need this book. XML is becoming THE standard for content description and metadata exchange.

It can handle special characters and non-Roman scripts which librarians often encounter in the bibliographic environment and offers the greatest promise of data longevity. This book will:

• Introduce you to XML for resource description and bibliographic data management
• Show you how to create XML records for metadata encoding
• Help you understand and use DTD (Document Type Definition) and schema for texts, bibliographic catalogs and authority files
• Show you how to deliver XML documents through the Web
