'Described by Maze as one of a number of Metadata Systems for Oral History.\nDeveloped in the mid 1990s.\nThe 15 dublin core elements are: creator, contributor, publisher, title, date, language, format, subject, description, identifier, relation, source, type, coverage, rights.\n“The key to the metadata system’s flexibility and adaptability is that the elements are optional–one, all, or a selection may be used—and repeatable.”\n[[like our shared questions, light structure. Raises the question of if we’re wanting to push for simply, quantitatively, “more standardization?”]]\nProprietary digital content management systems such as CONTENTdm and open-source, freely available ones such as Omeka, as well as such metadata systems and schema as Encoded Archival Description (EAD), Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS), and Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) have all been developed on a Dublin Core framework or are designed to be interoperable with it.\n - brcostelloekuehn'
