What Are Metadata Resources?

  • Metadata resources define the structure requirements, constraints, and capabilities of other resources and qualities
  • Resource identification qualities relate resources to identification-schema metadata
  • Classification qualities relate resources to resource metadata resources
  • Classification enables processing (e.g. modeling, management)
  • Like all other resources, metadata resources can evolve and change dynamically, at "run-time"
  • Like all other resources, metadata resource evolution and behavior are entitlement-based
  • Resources can have multiple classifications (e.g. "multiple inheritance")
  • Resource classifications can change dynamically, at run-time, according to entitlement
