  • Metadata By Jeffrey Pomerantz Everything we need to know about metadata, the usually invisible infrastructure for information with which we interact every day When metadata became breaking news, appearing in stories about surveillance by the National Security Agency, many members of the public encountered this once obscure term from information science for the first time Should people be reassuredEverything we need to know about metadata, the usually invisible infrastructure for information with which we interact every day When metadata became breaking news, appearing in stories about surveillance by the National Security Agency, many members of the public encountered this once obscure term from information science for the first time Should people be reassured that the NSA was only collecting metadata about phone calls information about the caller, the recipient, the time, the duration, the location and not recordings of the conversations themselves Or does phone call metadata reveal than it seems In this book, Jeffrey Pomerantz offers an accessible and concise introduction to metadata.In the era of ubiquitous computing, metadata has become infrastructural, like the electrical grid or the highway system We interact with it or generate it every day It is not, Pomerantz tell us, just data about data It is a means by which the complexity of an object is represented in a simpler form For example, the title, the author, and the cover art are metadata about a book When metadata does its job well, it fades into the background everyone except perhaps the NSA takes it for granted.Pomerantz explains what metadata is, and why it exists He distinguishes among different types of metadata descriptive, administrative, structural, preservation, and use and examines different users and uses of each type He discusses the technologies that make modern metadata possible, and he speculates about metadata s future By the end of the book, readers will see metadata everywhere Because, Pomerantz warns us, it s metadata s world, and we are just living in it.

    1. The joy of reading well written, dense and clever book It is an engaging introduction to metadata , every internet user should know at least all this.


    2. Now that I m in library school, I don t get to read many books any I read a lot of photocopied chapters or essays or academic articles This book is not quite as boring as it looks, but also still pretty boring


    3. The great thing about the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series that I always pitch to people is that it tends to cover topics that a lot of people think they understand, or at least understand enough, but if you read these expertly crafted books, you realize Oh, I guess I didn t really know much about this at all Wow which is a very nice, humbling experience Also you learn some useful info in the process This book was no exception I would characterize it as mostly a discussion of metadata as it [...]


    4. So, I judged a book by it s cover which is not even shown correctly in , fantastic work And it turned out it was a book about what it actually bluntly said on the cover I guess I was overthinking it in the age of incredulous mass surveillance who only look at your metadata This book is not about that Maybe couple of paragraphs.What this book turned out to be about was librarians, library classification standards, ontology standards, schemas, XML and the whole history of that business So yeah, a [...]


    5. One of the most accessible introductions to metadata I ve read This is not a book for the library or information professional, but for students and others who are just beginning to delve into the topic A good resource for undergraduate students.


    6. When I took metadata in grad school, I finished without ever actually understanding the semantic web or linked data I read this book as a refresher before an interview, and feel like now I could probably explain them.


    7. Wonderful little book that covers the philosophical basis of metadata This isn t a technical instruction manual Rather, it talks about why metadata exists, what it is, and why it matters, which some practical information tossed in.



    8. NOT JUST DATA ABOUT DATA Metadata is a means by which the complexity of an object is represented in a simpler form to the end of discovering things easily sober intro to metadata in the abstract a statement about a potentially informative object proper terminology distinguishes descriptive metadata, administrative , preservation , provenance metadata, use , rights , structural, meta metadata some words on schemes, RDF, DTD, Dublin Ohio Core, schema, semantic web, thesauri and 3rd party controll [...]


    9. A concise and well written book, coherent and rolling logically from the beginning to the end Very informative and just enough dense, yet not at all dry.There s this method, popular among non fiction authors, to alternate theoretical parts with stories, where those theories are exemplified it might be a strong method, but it got overused and patternized to the point that it s difficult to tell one book from another I was happy to not see this pattern in Pomerantz book There are plenty of example [...]
