Collection Properties

Shaded entries in the tables below indicate that either the semantics or the usage (e.g. optionality, cardinality, use of Encoding Schemes) of a metadata element have been optimised/localised by this Application Profile.

Name title
Label Title
Defined By The Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, v1.1
http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/
Definition

The name of the collection.

Comments

Enter the name of the collection preserving the original wording, order and spelling. Punctuation need not reflect the usage of the original. Subtitles should be separated from the title by a colon, for example:

Voices from the Dust Bowl: The Charles L. Todd and Robert Sonkin Migrant Worker Collection

Where a collection has a well known acronym it should be provided in parentheses after the name, for example:

Comments

Enter language names in the format defined by by RFC-3066, ISO 639-2 or as a free text description of the languages (or families of languages) used in the collection.

RFC-3066 includes a two-letter language code ISO 639 part 1 or a three-letter code taken from ISO 639 part 2, followed optionally by a two-letter country code (taken from the ISO 3166 standard). For example, 'en' for English, 'fr' for French, or 'en-GB' for English used in the United Kingdom. When a language in ISO 639 has both a two-letter and three-letter code, use the two-letter code; when it has only a three-letter code, use the three-letter code.

ISO 639-2 provides a list of three-letter language codes. For example, 'eng' for English.

Where more than one language is provided, a repeated attribute should be used for each.

Internet RFC 3066 'Tags for the Identification of Languages' specifies a primary subtag which is a two-letter code taken from ISO 639 part 1 or a three-letter code taken from ISO 639 part 2, followed optionally by a two-letter country code taken from ISO 3166. When a language in ISO 639 has both a two-letter and three-letter code, use the two-letter code; when it has only a three-letter code, use the three-letter code. This RFC replaces RFC 1766.
