This presentation provides an overview of the iLumina project, which is developing a digital library, funded by the National Science Foundation. After a brief introduction to the goals of the project and the library interfaces and functionality, we focus on several aspects of our implementation and use of IMS metadata: What IMS metadata elements and vocabularies do we support and why? How metadata is used to underpin a variety of library services, and do these service benefits offset the costs of creating the metadata? What information do we put in metadata and what do we recommend be put elsewhere (and why)? How have we implemented the IMS metadata, and what were the design alternatives? How have we made the implementation decisions, in terms of speed of development, ease of maintenance and enhanced functionality? What do we see as the next steps for using metadata, and for developing generic tools to flexibly manage IMS metadata, in digital libraries?
