Metadata crosswalks

From AtoM wiki


Main Page > Resources > Resources/Metadata crosswalk

AtoM has templates for describing archives using ISAD(G), RAD, MODS, Dublin Core and DACS metadata standards. The table below provides a crosswalk between the standards, using ISAD(G) as its basis. It also displays the EAD export for the fields.
