Metadata Schema of Panjab Digital Library :: Schema for Metadata of PanjabDigiLib
Metadata Schema of Panjab Digital Library
 
 
Metadata is an indispensable part of any digital collection, especially when this digital item is included in the online inventory of the digital institutions. This data can provide information about a text's author, publishers, copy right and a brief description of the contents. After a long research discussion and codification by several digitization institutions at the international level, a broad consensus has been arrived at to standardized Metadata Best Practices. The Dublin Core Metadata (DCM) best practice has been universally adopted for preparing metadata about digital collections by almost all digitization institutions. PDL Metadata Schema (PDLMS) has been developed after studying DCM schema and it consists of all the mandatory and optional elements of DCM Metadata Schema as well as a few elements which are required for local and regional needs.
