Tagged under "Information resource metadata"

Term definition: 
This refers to metadata describing information resources. It refers to the type of information resource described and in that sense this category is domain-independent: the resource described can pertain to any domain. These metadata datasets don't contain the data directly, but describe and give access to either unstructured information resources like documents, journals and multimedia or structured resources like datasets or catalogs.
