Libraries need standards
- Published version (with publisher's formatting)
The article discusses the need for standards in the library and information science profession, such as the use of the Dewey Decimal System of classification or the Dublin Core metadata scheme which facilitate information organization and library orientation. The most fundamental area in which standards are used is in the description and identification of objects. The author argues that the increasingly high number of electronic and Web-based information resources necessitates a universal set of standards for such material.
