This presentation gives an overview of the work of the RDA Metadata Interest Group. Metadata are essential for FAIR data, which is one reason why the group published a set of Metadata Principles that explain the nature of metadata and their role in research, and set out a vision for achieving interoperability and machine understanding of metadata. This includes characterising metadata standards using the Metadata Interest Group Recommended Metadata Element Set and using the Metadata Standards Catalog to match and map between them.
