English abstract

During the epoch of latest rapid evolutions in information society, the publishing, journalistic and information communities generally, in their attempt to organize and handle news information, use broadly recognized metadata standards. Their goal is the encoding, the documentation, the exchange of data and the development of interoperability between big organizations’ technological platforms. For the fulfillment of this aim some standards contribute, such as NewsML, Nitf, Prism, XMLNews, IPTC 7901, which have come to light after the long-term research efforts and the international cooperative schemes of important information and news organizations. The principal goal of the poster is the inspection of the above-mentioned standards and the encoding of a certain newspaper object with the implementation of the worldwide-recognized news standard, NewsML. Especially, the encoding constitutes a very creative and interesting process, because of the contemporary technologies demanded for its materialization. The main solicitude of this poster is to end up to some enlighten conclusions as far as the importance of news standards is concerned for the management of news information and the provision of personalized services to the end-users, and moreover to prove that news standards can be a substantial aid in the area of Library and Information Science, concerning knowledge management.
