Abstract: Facilitating discovery is an aspect of curation that has been addressed by the eBank UK project. This paper describes the metadata and associated issues considered when working within the chemistry sub-discipline of crystallography. A metadata-mediated discovery model has been implemented to aid the dissemination and sharing of research datasets; although the specific characteristics of crystallography were the main driver in determining the metadata requirements, consideration was also given to cross-disciplinary interaction and exchange. An overview of the metadata profile that has been developed is provided, against the background of the project.
