Metadata Data Name for Custom Metadata

Name of a single piece of metadata not otherwise defined in the NISO STS Tag Sets.


Some DTDs and schemas allow for metadata elements above and beyond that which can be specified by this Tag Set. This element can be used as an escape-hatch to record additional metadata that a standards organization wishes to preserve (so that the intellectual work to capture that content will not be lost) even though there is no direct expression for the metadata element in this Tag Set.
The <custom-meta> element allows for an infinite variety of name/value pairs (<meta-name> and <meta-value>), with few constraints on the length or content of the value. This element will probably be used for special cases, product-specific material, or other organization-specific metadata.

Related Elements

The element <custom-meta-group> is a grouping element that holds one or more <custom-meta> elements. Each <custom-meta> element contains a name/value pair, <meta-name> and <meta-value> respectively, which name and provide a value for a single metadata field.
