Maintenance and update of the tools list
2009-10-8, a new category, under the name of "Metadata quality", has been added to the list of tools. The DC Tools community wants to focus the coming year on tools and methodologies to evaluate the quality of large metadata sets. As managers of metadata repositories are increasingly confronted with thight budgets and accountability issues, there is a bigger need then ever to use tools which allow to evaluate in an automated manner the consistency, completeness and accuracy of existing metadata. Based upon the results of the quality assessment, more solid decisions can be taken regarding the distribution of resources for the enhancement of the metadata. Outdated links on the list have also been removed.
