The open source SobekCM digital repository software now supports the schema for Learning Object Metadata. This is an exciting addition to a wide array of metadata support which can be seen in this awesome visual display (thanks to Mark Sullivan, programmer and designer for creating this!).

Great news on new enhancements, and it’s amazing to see how powerful the SobekCM Resource Object design is to elegantly support so many metadata standards and to make these interoperable for use in a web-scale world.
