Metadata Guidelines

The NJ/DE Digital Collective Metadata Guidelines include requirements, recommendations and best practices for preparing your collection’s metadata for participation in the Hub and the DPLA. These guidelines are not meant to be a comprehensive cataloging guide but rather a guide for sharing data for participation in the DPLA. The NJ/DE Digital Collective does not recommend a particular metadata schema, as every organization’s needs are different. However, we do offer crosswalks to MARC, MODS, and Qualified Dublin Core.
