Introduction

Note: This document presents full details of the application profile. For a summary view, see the Dublin Core Collection Description Application Profile Summary [APS].

Collections and collection-level description

The term "collection" can be applied to any aggregation of physical or digital items. Those items may be of any type, so examples might include aggregations of natural objects, created objects, "born-digital" items, digital surrogates of physical items, and the catalogues of such collections (as aggregations of metadata records). The criteria for aggregation may vary: e.g. by location, by type or form of the items, by provenance of the items, by source or ownership, and so on. Collections may contain any number of items and may have varying levels of permanence.

A "collection-level description" provides a description of the collection as a unit: the resource described by a collection-level description is the collection, rather than the individual items within that collection. Collection-level descriptions are referred to in Michael Heaney's An Analytical Model of Collections and their Catalogues as "unitary finding-aids" [AMCC].

Collection-level description enables a collection provider to

  • disclose information about the content and availability of collections to users where item-level metadata does not exist or is not available, or where the provision of item-level detail is not required or appropriate

It enables a user to

  • discover and locate collections of interest
  • select collections to explore on the basis of a summary description
  • compare collections as broadly similar objects, even where items (and/or item-level metadata) are heterogeneous
  • understand conditions of access and use
  • interpret collections (and items within collections)

Increasingly, many of these functions - notably the discovery, location, selection and comparison of collections - are being carried out by software acting on behalf of a human user, perhaps in accordance with user preferences or with parameters describing the scope of a particular service.

A Note on Dublin Core Application Profiles

A Dublin Core Application Profile (DCAP) specifies how some class of DC metadata description sets is constructed, typically the class of description sets which are deployed within a metadata application or within a set of applications and services operating within some domain or community. A DCAP describes:

  1. The set of terms used in a class of DC metadata description sets.

  2. How the terms in this set are deployed in this class of DC metadata description sets. This includes

    • the types of resources described by descriptions within these description sets,
    • the properties referenced in statements in those descriptions, and how those properties are used to describe resources of the specfied type.
    • requirements for the the occurrence of statements using a specified property,
    • constraints on the sets of values which are referenced in a statement using a specified property (vocabulary encoding schemes), and
    • constraints on the datatypes of the value strings occurring in a statement using a specified property (syntax encoding schemes).

The terms description set, description, property, value, vocabulary encoding scheme, value representation, rich representation, value string, syntax encoding scheme, and related description are used in the sense they are used in the DCMI Abstract Model [DCAM].

This document is not a description of an XML format. There may be multiple bindings of this DCAP, to XML and to other syntaxes.

Functional Requirements of the DC CD AP

The DC CD AP is intended to provide a means of creating simple descriptions of collections and collection-descriptions suitable for a broad range of collections. It is designed primarily to support the discovery and selection of collections, though it may be used to support other functions such as collection management too. It is not intended to describe every possible characteristic of every type of collection.

The aim is that the DC CD AP should support:

  • the discovery of collections and collection-descriptions of potential interest, by enabling searching on various attributes of the collection including:

    • the name or title of the collection or collection-description
    • the subject and coverage of the collection
    • the nature or genre of the items within the collection or collection-description
    • the media type or format of the items within the collection or collection-description
    • the entity that created the collection or collection-description
    • the entity that owns the collection or collection-description
    • relationships between collections, between collection-descriptions and between collections and collection-descriptions
  • the identification of a known collection or collection-description, by enabling the capture and disclosure of identifying attributes such as

    • the formal identifier(s) the collection or collection-description
    • the name or title of the collection or collection-description
    • a textual description of the collection or collection-description
  • the selection of one or more collections or collection-descriptions from amongst a number of discovered collections or collection-descriptions, by enabling the capture and disclosure of attributes such as

    • a textual description of the collection or collection-description
    • a description of rights held in/over the collection or collection-description and conditions of access and use
    • a description of the custodial history of the collection or collection-description
    • a description of the way in which items are added to the collection or collection-description
  • the identification of the location of the collection or collection-description
  • the identification of the services that provide access to the collection or collection-description

Data Model

The DC CD AP is based on a data model which is derived from that described in Michael Heaney's An Analytical Model of Collections and their Catalogues [AMCC] and Users and Information Resources: An Extension of the Analytical Model of Collections and their Catalogues into Usage and Transactions [EAMCC]. The model used here is both a subset and a simplification of that model. The entity type which in that model is referred to as "Resource Mediator" is referred to here as "Service".

Figure 1 illustrates the primary entity types and their relationships:

Figure 1: Entity-Relation model

Fig 1: The DC CD AP Data Model

The following definitions are used (adapted from the Analytic Model):

  • Collection An aggregation of Items.
  • Item The concrete realisation of Content.
  • Location A place where a Collection is held.
  • Service A system that provides access to the Items within the Collection
  • Collection-Description A resource which describes a Collection.

In the Analytic Model relationships may carry attributes; in the DC CD AP, relationships are represented as simple properties and do not themselves carry attributes, so some of the expressivity of the model is lost in the metadata schema.

The DC CD AP describes the use of properties to represent attributes of the collection and of the collection-description, and relationships between collections, between collections and collection-descriptions, and between collections, collection-descriptions and other entities. It does not describe how to represent attributes of other entities in the model.

More specifically, the DC CD AP supports the description of those types of collection-description which are themselves collections, i.e. they are aggregations of items which are descriptions of other resources i.e. they are items of metadata.

Figure 2 summarises the relationship between a collection and collection-description and their constituent items. The relationship between an item in the collection-description and an item in the (described) collection varies depending on the nature of the collection-description. In some cases, there may be fairly simple correspondences between items in the collection-description and items in the described collection; in other cases the metadata items in the collection-description may describe groupings of items within the described collection as well as individual items, or indeed the individual items may not be described at all. Further, a collection-description which is itself a collection may be described by a second collection-description. For a more detailed discussion of the nature of collection-descriptions, see the Analytical Model [AMCC]

The Dublin Core Collection Description Application Profile (DC CD AP)

The DC CD AP specifies how to construct a DC metadata description set that includes:

  • a description of one or more collections (aggregations of items)
  • a description of zero or more collection-descriptions (resources which describe collections) (N.B. a collection-description is not necessarily a DC metadata description)

A description set conforming to this DCAP must contain at least one description of a collection. It may contain descriptions only of collections and collection-descriptions, or it may also include descriptions of resources of other types, related to those collections or collection-descriptions, which are referred to as values in statements about the collections or collection-descriptions. Such other resources might include the location of a collection, the services that provide access to a collection, concepts that are the subject of a collection, and agents related to the collection or collection-description. While this DCAP permits the inclusion of descriptions of those related resources in a description set, it does not specify the terms to be referenced in descriptions of resources other than collections and collection-descriptions.

The metadata terms referenced in the DC CD AP are drawn from the DCMI metadata vocabularies and also from other metadata vocabularies owned by other agencies.

The DC CD AP is independent of any particular syntax for representing description sets. Description sets conforming to the DC CD AP may be represented using any of the conventions recommended by DCMI for expressing DC metadata based on the DCMI Abstract Model.

Vocabularies/Namespaces used in this DCAP

All references to properties and classes in DC metadata descriptions are made using URIs, In this document, Qualified Names of the form prefix ":" local-part are sometimes used as abbreviations for URIs which identify metadata terms. Prefixes are assumed to be associated with Namespace Names (URIs) as follows, and the corresponding URI for the term is constructed by concatenating the Namespace Name and the local-part:

How to Read the Tables in this Document

The two sections "Describing a Collection" and "Describing a Collection-Description" each describe how a set of terms (properties, classes, vocabulary encoding schemes, syntax encoding schemes) is used to construct a DC metadata description of a resource of the specified type.

The first table in each of these sections describes the class, the type of resource, to which the metadata description applies.

Each subsequent table in the section describes how a specified property is used in a statement within a DC metadata description. The use of the property is described using the following attributes:

Note: For each value, at least one of the following components must be present: a value URI, a rich representation, a value string or a (related) description.

The following two sections describe the vocabulary encoding schemes and syntax encoding schemes referenced in the previous two sections.
