Abstract

Abstract: In 2003 Tasmania's principal educational and cultural organisations undertook an investigation into developing appropriate discovery tools to share digital assets. In this project an agreed set of metadata elements constituting a minimal application profile, and a process for metadata creation and use across the education and library sectors (including basic workflows and administrative processes) were developed. The aim was to facilitate searching across e-learning infrastructure domains and across systems and institutions. Resource discovery testing was undertaken with the COLIS Demonstrator to test the application profile against some real world data. The principal finding was that a minimal profile can be useful yet cost efficient. The minimal profile also establishes a base upon which further development can take place
