Metadata quality is controlled by a set of processes which ensures that cultural heritage objects can be identified, discovered and seen in context by audiences, in a manner appropriate to the context in which the data provider created them. Metadata must include information on the potential re-use of cultural heritage objects.

This report looks at how data partners’ motivation, the technical requirements and the content of the metadata affect overall metadata quality. We believe this document to be relevant to the entire Europeana Network.
