An NSDL Registry: Supporting Interoperable Metadata Distribution

What we're about: Building on work in the Dublin Core community on metadata registries, we propose to develop and deploy an NSDL metadata registry (hereafter, ‘the Registry’) to enable collection holders creating metadata for their collections and various applications that generate, consume and process metadata to identify, declare and publish their metadata schemas (element/property sets) and schemes (value spaces/controlled vocabularies) in support of discovery, reuse, standardization and interoperability within NSDL and globally. We proposed to accomplish this task by building on existing work within the communities focused on metadata management issues including the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI), the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and researchers in networked knowledge organization systems. In particular, we intend to seed development of the Registry with the DCMI Registry open source application.

Please see documentation on customizing the interface and the User's Guide for usage and configuration help.
