Gradually, a working categorization of metadata types is emerging, with one typology listing six categories needed to support resource description and retrieval: (1) registration (uniform resource names), (2) terms and conditions for use, (3) document/object structure for instruction in access, (4) history of use, (5) context, and (6) content, which includes description and subject analysis (Michelson, 1995).
URIs have three parts: Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), Uniform Resource Names (URNs), and Uniform Resource Characteristics (URCs), which are in different stages of development.
These include the Uniform Resource Names (URN), the Serial Item and Contribution Identifier (SICI), the Publisher Item Identifier (PII), and the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) system.
