This paper seeks to discuss the roles and responsibilities of a metadata manager in collaborative digital projects.
The paper describes the general requirements for metadata management, and introduces some scenarios in the practices of digital projects by the Rutgers University Libraries to support the generalized definition. A workflow of metadata management is illustrated.
With an explicit definition of the roles and responsibilities of the metadata manager, many other digital libraries that need to develop a new or optimize the existing workflow may find the Rutgers experience useful as a reference.
Very few papers have explored this topic, although the functions of metadata in the development of digital projects have been talked about extensively.
