Contact Officers,
Hi. We would like to find out if any jurisdiction is still actively using
the MET (Metadata Entry Tool) tool for metadata entry/export?
ANZLIC has supported this tool for many years now and we believe that very
few jurisdictions (if any?) are using the tool in an operational context.
The majority of jurisdictions now have web-based entry tools for metadata
and the metadata themselves are stored in large (object) RDBMS.
The forthcoming ASDI Action Planning workshop series (August & September) is
the opportunity to showcase your jurisdictional tools and to identify any
applications that might be implemented "nationally" to avoid needless
The MET has been a useful impetus to get metadata entered into databases and
ultimately to have it queryable through the ASDD, but the ongoing
maintenance of this tool (with endless operating system upgrades etc)
remains a heavy project management and financial burden for ANZLIC.
Please respond by Wednesday 9th July if you are still using the MET tool in
your operational environment.
