The Category can link to any identifiable object and can help discovery of structural metadata. In a data dissemination or data collection system the Category will probably link to a Dataflow or Metadataflow to support data or metadata discovery or data or metadata collection management. The Category can link to multiple identifiable objects and any identifiable object can link to multiple Categories, possibly in different Category Schemes. The link between a single Category and a single identifiable object is contained in a Categorisation.
