Metadata Crosswalks for Digital Commonwealth OAI-PMH
Institutions that currently employ non-Dublin Core metadata descriptions of their digital objects will need to crosswalk their existing markup into Dublin Core to facilitate harvesting by the Digital Commonwealth portal and/or inclusion in the Digital Commonwealth repository. In most instances, such crosswalk mapping will entail member institution consultation with a Digital Commonwealth metadata specialist on a case by case basis.
