Résumé : This chapter provides an overview of metadata typologies and uses, clarifying why sometimes different approaches to metadata types and metadata uses could be misleading. We present a general overview of how metadata can be interpreted differently, and then elaborate specific typologies of metadata schemas, metadata schemes, and metadata elements. The second part of the chapter focuses on how these metadata schemas, schemes and elements, which are in a sense abstract constructions and containers, are being deployed by their user communities. Concluding, the analysis of concrete metadata uses discussed within the second part provides new refinements to the metadata types and vocabularies discussed in the first part.
