It has been interesting to read about metadata, Dublin Core, and the differences in classifying web information resources versus bibliographic information resources.  I was struck by the similarities between MARC21 and the 15 Dublin Core data elements.  Both codify much of the same information, but the Dublin Core elements allow more interoperability between systems  and for data exchange on the web.  I am left wondering what the future of description will look like.  Will it  follow one format and standard, or remain a patchwork of various formats for various types of resources?…
