National metadata repository
Goal and tasks
The aim of the project is to provide a shared metadata repository (Melinda) to all Finnish libraries. The libraries will have a new working and operating environment for metadata production at their disposal. The description process of libraries will become more efficient when the utilisation of work done by other libraries becomes easier and different description practices become fewer.
The Ministry of Education and Culture
The project is implemented by a project group based at the National Library of Finland. Library-specific implementations will be carried out as joint projects with libraries joining Melinda. The project is managed by the Information management steering group and the close steering group internal to the National Library of Finland.
