SPEC Kit 298 investigates how metadata is implemented in ARL member libraries: which staff are creating metadata and for what kinds of digital objects, what schemas and tools they use to create and manage metadata, what skills metadata staff need and how they acquire them, and the organizational changes and challenges that metadata has brought to libraries. It includes documentation from respondents in the form of mission statements, organization charts, job descriptions, and policies.
