Digital Archives Metadata Registry

"The Digital Archives Metadata Registry:

allows Digital Archives staff to progressively register preferences for published metadata terms (e.g. Dublin Core) to represent common metadata elements in the digital archives
allows Digital Archives staff to progressively coin new terms (by providing a URI and description) to represent metadata elements in the digital archives for which no suitable published term can be
identified
informs NSW government agencies wishing to transfer digital archives of State Records' metadata preferences
informs users accessing the digital archives of the full set of searchable metadata fields in the system
provides a 'best practice' reference for NSW government agencies wishing to standardise metadata used in agency recordkeeping systems
provides a useful resource for the digital preservation and recordkeeping communities."
