"Quality metadata is accurate, consistent and sufficient"
J. Greenberg and D.W. Robertson
Supporting quality metadata: an essential role for LIS professionals.
Key Elements of Good Quality Metadata
3. Human and Machine Readable
5. Meaningful to Users
6. Clear on Re-Use
Metadata quality is important because, without it, digitised objects are unfindable and therefore useless to either the contributing institution or its audiences.
Quality metadata should have relevant, human-readable fields, or be structured in a way that makes logical sense to a human being (in the case of hierarchical structured datasets).
