The Helsinki meeting of the Dublin core working group agreed that there was a one to one relation between a metadata set and an information resource. Thus, if the metadata we are creating describes a digital object whose source was a photograph which in turn has as its source an original manuscript, there will be three metadata sets (each consisting of as many as all fifteen repeatable Dublin Core elements). Obviously we need to define the nature of the relation between these metadata sets (sometimes these will be in the same "record" and other times they will have been created by different people at different times).
