This material was first presented for the Australian National University 
course "Information Technology in Electronic Commerce" 
(COMP3410/COMP6341, prepared and presented by Tom Worthington FACS HLM, a 
Visiting Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at the Australian 
National University (and Director Tomw Communications Pty Ltd).

Two topics are introduced: metadata and data management (digital library, 
electronic document management). Use of the technology for practical e-
commerce and e-publishing applications is emphasized using case studies 
and anecdotes drawing on the author's experience. 

The material is divided into three sections on metadata, three on Data 
Management, a tutorial on Metadata, plus a tutorial on Data Management, 
assignments and examination questions. There have been revisions to the 
material from 2001/2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005.

This document is intended to provide both for live group presentation and 
accompanying lecture notes for individual use. The material may also be 
of use to those interested in the issues, but not undertaking formal 
study. However, it is not intended as an on-line course. Those wishing to 
use the material as part of a formal or for-profit course are invited to 
contact the author.

Thanks, Tom
