Metadata Content Model

A summary of the different metadata standards used in OUDL

Cloud created by:

The table below shows a summary of the metadata standards being used for each content type expected to go into the OUDL.

Generic metadata, such as Dublin Core, is ascribed by our repository system - Fedora - which is compliant with the Open Archives Iniative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting. Generic metadata also includes the RELS-EXT and RELS-INT formats which are Fedora specific and used to define relationships between digital objects using RDF. This will provide the core structure to support Linked Data functionality.

Each content type then has specific standards, which are explained more fully in other clouds. These include MODS for text based resources, EBU-Core for moving image and sound and VRA for images. Finally we will record important preservation metadata through PREMIS which will also be expanded upon in another cloud.
