Using Dublin Core for DISCOVER: a New Zealand visual art and music resource for schools

Karen Rollitt, Adrienne Kebbell, Douglas Campbell


Discover is a web resource supporting the visual arts and music curriculum in New Zealand schools. It contains 2500 multimedia items from the collections of the Alexander Turnbull Library, which holds the national cultural heritage collections, and 300
resources from other sources. The product uses a metadata scheme that combines simple (unqualified) DC and qualified DC, EAD and local extensions expressed in XML and uses the RDF framework proposed by DCMI for expressing qualified DC in RDF/XML. This metadata schema will continue to evolve to support interchange of the NLNZ’s digital resources within the library, archival and education communities.
