METS Editorial Board

Board Meeting Notes

The METS Editorial Board is an international group of volunteers committed to maintaining editorial control over METS, its XML Schema, the METS Profile XML Schema, and official METS documentation. The Board promotes the use of the METS specification, maintains a registry of METS Profiles, and endorses best practices in the use of METS as they emerge. Members represent important communities of interest for METS, including members of the Digital Library Federation, its initial sponsor, and the Library of Congress, its maintenance agency.

    Board Mission Statement (Approved November 2006)

    METS is a digital object encoding and transmission specification -- targeted to meet the needs of communities responsible for the management and transmission of digital content, such as libraries, archives, museums. By using METS, such communities can record descriptive, administrative, and structural metadata about a digital artifact and its components into a single hub document.

    More information about the METS Editorial Board can be found on the METS wiki including Board meeting agendas. METS Board meetings are open to the public as of Fall 2006. Questions about the METS Editorial Board can be directed to the METS listserv or to individual Board members.
