I have been researching current metadata standards and have come up with
some basic questions. I am hoping someone might be able to assist me. I
apologize for any incorrect use of terminology (I have very little
background in this field).
1. Is the element set established by the DCMI a set of elements used to
fulfill the standardized requirements of "Descriptive Metadata" as defined
by the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS), or does it cover
more than that?
2. Are there other initiatives that are working to develop standards for
the other types of metadata required in a METS document (administrative,
structural, file groups, and behavioral), or are these generally defined
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
