How should agencies describe their data assets?

Establishing a common metadata vocabulary is critical to effective communication and to allow us to share our information with others.  Metadata provides potential users of the data a better understanding of the data – how it was collected, its purpose and use, and definitions for data it contains.  This document helps ensure that agencies publishing data are completing metadata in a consistent manner.
