Sumario: A lot of metadata structures for describing information resources created by humans to be used by them. For a pair of decades, the Semantic Web activity is focused on the representation of data through the creation of profiles that automatically pass information systems, allowing the filtering, selection and connection of different pieces of information. At the present time, guidelines for acquiring information, process and disseminate, conducive to professional librarians entering different markets will require greater knowledge and expertise. The purpose of this paper is to show how the metadata are being used to organize and control a wider range of information resources in the collections of digital libraries and institutional repositories. After reviewing the literature on the metadata, which relate to the way they are understanding the metadata in libraries, we conclude that the bibliographic traditions and metadata activity, substantive elements the third movement of cataloging, are proposed outside the course that had Bibliographic Control in standardizing and unifying the standards of description.
