With MetaLex we introduce a framework for metadata management where information can be inferred from different areas of metadata coding, such as metadata for catalogue descriptions, linguistic levels, or tiers. This is done for consistency and efficiency in metadata recording and applies the same inference techniques that are used for lexical inference. For this purpose we motivate the need for metadata descriptions on all document levels, describe the different structures of metadata, use existing metadata recommendations on different levels of annotations, and show a usecase of metadata inference. 1. Objectives We introduce a framework which uses similar procedures for metadata management as for the management of structured lexical information using inference techniques over descriptions and structures. Metadata categories such as the general Dublin Core (DC, DCMI Usage Board, 2003) set, the ISLE Metadata Initiative (IMDI, ISLE Metadata Initiative, 2001) linguistic set, and the Open Language Archive Community (OLAC, Simons and Bird, 2002
