                a value from a controlled vocabulary or formal 
                classification scheme.

                for encoding the date value is defined in a profile of

Name: type
Label: Resource Type
Definition: The nature or genre of the content of the resource.
Comment: Type includes terms describing general categories, functions,
                genres, or aggregation levels for content. Recommended best
                practice is to select a value from a controlled vocabulary
                (for example, the DCMI Type Vocabulary [DCMITYPE]). To 
                describe the physical or digital manifestation of the 
                resource, use the Format element.

Name: format
Label: Format
Definition: The physical or digital manifestation of the resource.
Comment: Typically, Format may include the media-type or dimensions of
                the resource. Format may be used to determine the software,
                hardware or other equipment needed to display or operate the
                resource. Examples of dimensions include size and duration.
                Recommended best practice is to select a value from a
                controlled vocabulary (for example, the list of Internet Media
                Types [MIME] defining computer media formats).

Name: identifier
Label: Resource Identifier
Definition: An unambiguous reference to the resource within a given context.
Comment: Recommended best practice is to identify the resource by means
                of a string or number conforming to a formal identification
                system.
                Example formal identification systems include the Uniform
                Resource Identifier (URI) (including the Uniform Resource
                Locator (URL)), the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and the
                International Standard Book Number (ISBN).

Definition: A language of the intellectual content of the resource.
Comment: Recommended best practice is to use RFC 3066 [RFC3066],
                which, in conjunction with ISO 639 [ISO639], defines two-
                and three-letter primary language tags with optional
                subtags. Examples include "en" or "eng" for English,
                "akk" for Akkadian, and "en-GB" for English used in the

Name: coverage
Label: Coverage
Definition: The extent or scope of the content of the resource.
Comment: Coverage will typically include spatial location (a place name
                or geographic coordinates), temporal period (a period label,
                date, or date range) or jurisdiction (such as a named
                administrative entity).
                Recommended best practice is to select a value from a
                controlled vocabulary (for example, the Thesaurus of Geographic
                Names [TGN]) and that, where appropriate, named places or time
                periods be used in preference to numeric identifiers such as
                sets of coordinates or date ranges.

Comment: Typically, a Rights element will contain a rights
                management statement for the resource, or reference
                a service providing such information. Rights information
                often encompasses Intellectual Property Rights (IPR),
                Copyright, and various Property Rights.
                If the Rights element is absent, no assumptions can be made
                about the status of these and other rights with respect to
                the resource.

Label: Mediator
Definition: A class of entity that mediates access to the
                resource and for whom the resource is intended or useful.
Comment: The audiences for a resource are of two basic classes: (1) an 
                ultimate beneficiary of the resource, and (2) frequently, an 
                entity that mediates access to the resource. The mediator 
                element refinement represents the second of these two classes.
