    In addition 9 LIS post-graduate students (Tallinn University) and 21 academic library users (University of Portsmouth) were interviewed.

    In addition, he argues that such systems can only be functional in domains in which there are expert librarians, who are able to describe the content for an already expert user base. Both Weinberger (2007) and Shirky (2005) agree that in the digital information landscape and in domains where there exist huge collections of information objects and where users come from diverse backgrounds employing diverse terminologies in the search for information, pre-determined categorisation systems (standards-based approaches) are very likely to fail to scale and become unwieldy.

    Some of these challenges can be addressed through technical means, such as changing library metadata formats from MARC to web-compatible formats, others are conceptual and yet others are social and institutional. Thus, whilst, standardisation and expert created (controlled) metadata has its benefits, it fails to adequately represent the diversity of views and perspectives that exist in library users. Hence, standards-based metadata approaches have come under criticism for being rigidly hierarchical and authoritative (Alemu, Stevens, & Ross, 2012; Shirky, 2005; Weinberger, 2007).
