An XML Pipeline Based System Architecture for Managing Bibliographic Metadata.

Johannes Textor, Benjamin Feldner


In our knowledge-based society, bibliographic metadata is everywhere. Although several metadata standards for bibliographic information have been developed and established by the professional librarian community, home-grown ad-hoc solutions are still widespread in small to medium-sized institutions. This paper presents a framework for storing, indexing, and browsing bibliographic metadata that is designed to lower the barrier for metadata standard adoption by facilitating legacy data import and integration into existing infrastructure. These goals are achieved using XML pipelines as a central design paradigm. As a practical use case, we discuss the implementation of the described architecture at a research institute in our university, where it is now in productive use for managing publication lists and the local library.
