The study is based on the content analysis of the existing literature on metadata and its importance with regard to its role in description and discovery of resources especially heritage objects. Cultural heritage objects which are remnants of civilizations and only link to get connected with our past need to be preserved carefully, promoted wisely and in cyberspace one has to ensure their increased accessibility. Metadata schema which provide essential links to and add visibility to cultural objects need to be framed thoroughly keeping intrinsic and extrinsic features of cultural objectives in consideration. The issues of interoperability between different metadata schemas need to be achieved with the implementation of effective metadata mapping and crosswalks. The current study provides a superficial view of such studies which have deliberated thoroughly on metadata and its importance to cultural objects when canvassed on digital frame.
