Abstract: This paper presents an overview of a number of international standards for metadata descriptors that have been, or are being, defined through ISO. ISO standards can be used for the creation of so-called metadata registries that encompass both the metadata databases (registers) and the management policies and processes that govern their use. The standards for metadata registries are being used as a basis for infrastructure for metadata storage and retrieval for the Language Resources community as part of an EU eContent project. This paper describes metadata registries and their use for supporting the documentation of extant metadata and the specification of new metadata and interoperable interchange formats.
