  16. GEM Architecture and Tools CIDOC 2000

  17. Creating/Editing Metadata catalog Embedded Metadata Resources GEMCat edit GEM Cataloged Resources Separate Metadata CIDOC 2000

  18. Harvest Process Index files web harvest Embedded Metadata HARVEST local harvest Files from DB driven collections Separate Metadata CIDOC 2000

  19. Harvest Process Index files web harvest Embedded Metadata Full Site Index (The Gateway) HARVEST local harvest Files from DB driven collections Separate Metadata CIDOC 2000

  20. Why use Metadata? • Lack of precision in web searching • Time-consuming for user to determine quality, authority CIDOC 2000

  21. Why use Metadata? Economics of traditional cataloging • Internet resources move,disappear • Users “one click away” from the resource CIDOC 2000

  22. Why use Metadata? • Establishes a consistent means to search across websites while maintaining your autonomy • Brings users to your site • The Gateway searches 12,000 resources across 150 websites. CIDOC 2000

  23. Why use Metadata? Customized interfaces to the same metadata catalog www.thegateway.org www.nea.org/gem education.go.com www.teachers-connect.net/ CIDOC 2000

  24. Why use Metadata? Allows organizations to create own “Gateways”: • CHIN (Canadian Heritage Information Network) • MCI Marco Polo Project • 6 partner sites CIDOC 2000

  25. Why use Metadata? • National Institute for Literacy – LINCS • Network of adult literacy websites • NASA –Office of Space Science • Distributed NASA educational materials CIDOC 2000
