Public Broadcasting releases comments on metadata dictionary

Public Broadcasting has released comments on the inaugural version of the Public Broadcasting Metadata Dictionary (PBMD), a standard way to describe all public broadcasting content.

Development of the PBMD began in January 2002 with help from radio and television producers and managers, archivists and information scientists.

In February 2004, 47 panelists participated in a Request for Comments survey -the first public unveiling of the PBMD - to determine its usefulness.

Ninety-six percent of the respondents agreed public broadcasting needs a core metadata dictionary, and after completing the survey, the same percentage indicated the proposed PBMD meets this need. In addition, 80 percent of the respondents stated PBMD would be a useful tool for marking-up and searching public broadcasting content assets. The majority of PBMD elements and their associated controlled vocabularies were individually ranked as useful.
