Fedora can store metadata in any format, including common formats like XML and JSON. Additionally, Fedora enables RDF properties to be defined for objects it stores or references. This includes all types of metadata, such as technical, rights, provenance, and descriptive. Managing this metadata in Fedora means considering how best to make use of RDF and Linked Data. Also included are metadata recommendations and mapping recommendations from different community efforts using Fedora.
