Meta-data could make proper attribution of web-based documents easy for students and scholars alike. Why don't more pages contain bibliographic meta-data (like Dublin Core)? For that matter, how may do? Why aren't there tools to help the end-user capture and format meta-data? This talk will examine these issues and report on an on-going survey of the web that is measuring the percentage of pages containing meta-data. An open-source tool for transferring meta-data to a bibliographic database will also be shown.
