How to access direct webpages for metadata

Every individual metadata item has a corresponding unique web address such as This is the unique webpage address for the data element Birth—birth weight, total grams NNNN.

If a user has a record of this address they can type it into their browser address line. This will direct the user to the particular metadata item page.

Internet browsers also provide a bookmark or favourites option that METeOR users can use to 'mark' a metadata item page of interest. Users can then link directly to the metadata item by selecting their bookmark/favourite link from the browser options.

The above options allow users to access a metadata item in METeOR without having to use the search function. They also allow users access to metadata items from external websites in a quick and easy manner.
