Metadata profile

A metadata profile describes digital content using a set of predefined attributes such as title, author, or educational objective.

There are many different metadata profiles in use worldwide. Education Services Australia distribution systems use the ANZ-LOM metadata application profile.

Describing a digital resource using the ANZ-LOM metadata application profile enables interoperability and helps users to access the resource across the education sector.

The ANZ-LOM profile facilitates national sharing, and ensures that:

  • the resource complies with international and national metadata standards that are compatible with the education sector
  • the learning value of the resource is optimised
  • authorities and vocabularies are implemented consistently accross collections
  • access, search, selection, use, trade and management of the resource are supported.
