Status report on metadata relating to cultural content by Observatoire de la culture et des communications du Québec (OCCQ)

In the context of Québec’s Digital Cultural Plan, OCCQ produced a status report on metadata relating to cultural content.

Cultural sectors covered by the work

The objective of the report is to paint a picture of the current use of metadata in five cultural sectors :

  • Books and libraries
  • Audiovisual
  • Sound recordings
  • Performing arts
  • Heritage, archives, and museums

Topics of interest

The work also looks at the main findings regarding the situation and the challenges associated with the discoverability of online content, content consumption measurement, and the remuneration of rightholders.
