Do we need data, metadata contents and metacontets? Of course we do, if we want to organize, classify storage and retrieval information. It was a traditional library duty, but nowadays we are dealing with high computerized systems which are able to organize thousands of texts in electronic format.
I would like to introduce DOIS (Documents in Information Scients) , it is an efort of some volunteers to put together scientist specialized texts, which still now where non linked. They pretend to select the information from valid sources to create a virtual scientific library:
“DoIS is a database of articles and conference proceedings published in electronic format in the area of Library and Information Science. DoIS is a volunteer effort to create a free bibliographic resource of scientific texts specialized in Information Science.”
You can also participate: “The used system is the one that facilitates RcLIS (Research in Computing, Library and Information Science) based on a distributed architecture in which the work of description of documents is distributed between a set of institutions.” They will help you to insert your documents, thesis or resources in the data base by linking in – Step by step instruction for RcLIS contributors –
