Which brings us full circle to my original question :chuckle:
If we have some form of shared harvesting going on (maybe in some clever
web 2.0 kinda way, who knows), then surely you want *as a minimum* the
15 Dublin Core fields, and preferably the full 20-odd fields of metadata
that the Repositories are taking in.
On the other hand, we also know that people are lazy, and will fill in
the fewest boxes possible (in one session) - so what is the minimum
data-set the Repository people want?
What is *your* minimum set of metadata you would be prepared to see in
an OAI harvest? What would you *like* to see in a record?
