ADMS Questionnaire No. 2
List your Metadata of asset description – Federation of Repositories
The ADMS Community tackles the issue of a federation of repositories for semantic assets to make decentralised resources available through a single
point of access. The primary goal to achieve the level
of interoperability required for such a federation is
to make artefacts available by means of a harmonised Asset Description Metadata Schema (ADMS). ADMS can be used as a common language to
describe semantic artefacts stored in separate systems. It can also provide some directions for new
initiatives to create similar repositories. In this way, ADMS will facilitate the federated use of semantic resources, especially of those used for and by public administrations.
Our second step of the ADMS development is to identify metadata fields describing assets in existing
repositories and metadata that is necessary to enable a federated search across a federation of repositories on semantic assets.
What do we mean by “List your Metadata requirements”?
The following questionnaire is based an initial evaluation of repositories that can be found as “related repositories” at www.semic.eu.
As a repository owner: We would like you to evaluate the list of metadata and semantic statements.
Do they match with metadata of your repository? Please give us a short yes/no-statement and a
short comment about those metadata that are defined differently in your repository. Add any
metadata which is missing in the list and of course metadata that might be helpful to have in future.
As an academic ADMS-Member: We would like you to evaluate the list of metadata and semantic
statements. Please provide a short statement and/or comment on relevance of this metadata. Add
any metadata which is missing and of course metadata that might be helpful to have in future.
Your next step
Please send the filled questionnaire back to Renke. The SEMIC.EU team will set up a synopsis and publish it
within the ADMS Community. Please consider that you don’t have to complete the questionnaire. Just send it,
if you finalize your work.
