Abstract

In this paper we describe a framework to increase the accessibility and reuse of objects stored in digital repositories. In many cases digital repositories are created with little consideration to the wider information environment, or the extension of the repository to items beyond the initial collection. The CMES framework emphasizes providing a structure for creating appropriate content models, selecting appropriate metadata schemas, and the need for a modular approach to the creation of a user interface.
