Metadata for information and records

Metadata helps people to find, understand, authenticate, trust, use, and manage information and records. If information and records have metadata, we know what it is, what it has been used for and how to use it. Metadata also makes information and records easier to find. Information and records consist of content and persistently linked metadata. Without key metadata, the value of information and records is significantly diminished.
