Metadata will increasingly be created remotely at the point of need

Far from becoming irrelevant, metadata for repository items will

become more important but it will increasingly be created and assigned

remotely. This will be by automated procedures such as indexing and

text analysis and also by users and readers, through the use of

tagging mechanisms. These developments will have implications for

consistency between repositories and between items.
