Book Review: Metadata for Transmedia Resources

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


From the moment that author Ana Vukadin invokes the memory of small-town murder victim Laura Palmer on page one of Metadata for Transmedia Resources, the reader is transported into a world of intertextuality, transfictionality, and various fictional worlds that seem stranger and yet just as familiar as Twin Peaks. Using liberal amounts of examples from popular culture and literary canons—from J. K. Rowling’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter to the Wachowskis’ Matrix—Vukadin goes down the veritable rabbit hole of transmedia resources, explains why transmedia resources matter increasingly to libraries, and outlines best practices in describing and organizing the metadata for transmedia resources. Resplendent with modeling examples and illustrations from fictional worlds, the subtle differences in and complexity of transmedia resources becomes clear.
