This chapter describes metalogy, an XML/metadata framework that can handle several different metadata formats. Metalogy was developed under the Digital Museum Project funded by the National Science Council of Taiwan. It is common to have different data types and catalog formats even within one organization. In order to accommodate a variety of objects, it is often necessary to adopt several metadata formats. Thus, when designing a metadata management system, one needs to be able to handle heterogeneous metadata formats. XML, being a standard gaining increasing popularity, is also often used as data format so that exchange between data can be done in a uniform way.
