Notes[edit]

Resource Type

  • DC type element.
  • Use on both Simple and Qualified DC templates.
  • Discrepancy between DC authorities for label: "Resource Type" (User Guide) and "Type" (Element Set Version 1.1).
  • Use value list ("DC Resource Type" taxonomy) from DCMI Type Vocabulary:
    • Collection
    • Dataset
    • Event
    • Image
    • Interactive resource
    • Moving image
    • Physical object
    • Service
    • Software
    • Sound
    • Still image
    • Text
  • Does not map to any existing core Qubit field.
  • Handle by Qubit custom field (property::name="resource_type" value=" ").
  • Note similarity to custom field in RAD template for managing RAD General material designation.
  • Move to core Qubit field in information_object table?

Format

  • DC format element.
  • Use only on Simple DC template; in Qualified DC, splits into separate fields for Extent and Medium.
  • Maps to Qubit information_object::extent_and_medium field.

Extent

  • DC extent qualifier (refines DC format element).
  • Use only on Qualified DC template.
  • Does not map to any existing core Qubit field (partially overlaps with information_object::extent_and_medium).
  • Handle via Qubit property::name="dc_extent" value=" ".

Medium

  • DC medium qualifier (refines DC format element).
  • Use only on Qualified DC template.
  • Does not map to any existing core Qubit field (partially overlaps with information_object::extent_and_medium).
  • Handle by Qubit custom field (property::name="dc_medium" value=" ").

Description

  • DC description element.
  • Use on both Simple and Qualified DC templates.
  • Maps to Qubit information_objectscope_and_content field.

Abstract

  • DC abstract qualifier (refines DC description element).
  • Use on Qualified DC template only.
  • Does not map to any existing core Qubit field.
  • Handle by Qubit custom field (property::name="abstract" value=" ").
  • Note correlation with EAD <abstract> and MODS <abstract> elements.

Table of contents

  • DC tableOfContents qualifier (refines DC description element).
  • Use on Qualified DC template only.
  • Does not map to any existing core Qubit field.
  • Handle by Qubit custom field (property::name="table_of_contents" value=" ").
  • Note correlation with MODS <tableOfContents> element.

Language / Script of material

  • DC language element.
  • Use on DC Simple template; for DC Qualified, move to Access and use area div (better manage screen real estate).
  • Maps to Qubit property::information_object_language and property::information_object_script

Rights management

  • DC rights element.
  • Use on DC Simple template; for DC Qualified, move to Access and use area div (better manage screen real estate).
  • Discrepancy between DC authorities for label: "Rights Management" (User Guide) and "Rights" (Element Set Version 1.1).
  • Content maps to 2 Qubit fields: information_object::access_conditions and information_object::reproduction_conditions.
  • Recommend handling as Qubit property, reserving core Qubit fields for direct mapping to DC qualifiers (accessRights and licenses).
