Implementation proposals


Overall

Remove duplicate element names from application profile
- Date (AD.Date, DC.Date, Ev.Date)
- Audience (AGLS.Audience, EDNA.Audience)

AD.Date

Should these be qualifiers of AD.Date or elements?
AD.DateAccepted
AD.DateArchived
AD.DateDisplay

DC.Format. Extent

Need to collect best practice for entering physical dimensions, filesize or duration of digital resources
This element qualifier for Format allows the metadata creator to indicate the physical dimensions, filesize or duration of the resource. Examples include:
DC.Format.Extent = 3419 bytes
DC.Format.Extent = 34 minutes
DC.Format.Extent = 2 x 3.5 inch floppy disks
The WG make no specific recommendations about how units should be associated with the value.
(DC Working Group 1999-11-17: http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/metadata/resources/dc/dc-format-wg/proposals-all.html)

DC.Rightsholder

A person or organization owning or managing rights over the resource. Recommended best practice is to use the URI or name of the Rights Holder to indicate the entity.
Should this element be added to edna metadata profile?

DC.Publisher

Consider using controlled authority for major publishers, especially stakeholders, government departments, professional associations etc. Possibly linked to directory records in edna repository

DC.Creator

Consider using author authority, eg Libraries Australia Personal Names Headings
Personal name headings

EV.Mode

Require a definition for this element, and a name for the values - presume this is a scheme. Is it too confusing to have the element and the scheme called the same thing?

edna-document

- discuss additions to this scheme

edna-userlevel

Check against ASCED and AQF

edna-news

Consider an edna-news scheme rather than having news stuck in the ev-type scheme with lots of events

ev-region

Can this be integrated with edna-spatial?

ev-type

Can we retrospectively incorporate this in to edna-event? Or should we retire edna-event? Just live with the two?

ANZSIC 2006

Should this be added as a scheme to DC.Subject?
Check this against VTE category structure.

myfuture Industry Classification scheme (second level terms)

Should this be added as a scheme to DC.Subject?
Check this against VTE category structure.
Compare with ANZSIC 2006

APSDEP

This has been subsumed into the VOCED thesaurus?
Remove from edna schemes for DC.Subject.

OZJAC

Australian Courses and Careers Database http://www.curriculum.edu.au/ozjac/
Vocabulary is not available online. Prefer to use myfuture Industry Classification scheme and/or ANZSIC 2006
Remove from edna schemes for DC.Subject
