Abstract

High quality metadata allows for effective and valuable digital libraries. A system which harvests and processes metadata was built to assess metadata quality. The system showed that metadata quality can be determined automatically. Implementing such an assessment allows for metadata to be measured and standardised effectively, overall improving the quality and efficiency of digital libraries.
