Abstract

There are no established criteria to evaluate how well data dictionaries and repositories eliminate redundancy and help retrieve meaningful data elements in response to a query. This paper proposes five criteria namely, relevance, consistency, common use among information systems, degree of automation and degree of security to evaluate data dictionaries and repositories and explains them using a detailed example. Empirical studies that apply these criteria to data dictionaries used in an organization would further refine the criteria and provide valuable results to data base administrators.
