Subject [greenstone-users] best metadata set for photographs
Hi,

In Greenstone, I am using Dublin Core to catalogue a collection of photographs. In Dublin Core, subjects are not hierarchical. For example, the place Galway is in Connacht and Connacht is in Ireland. In Dublin Core, I can only list each element in a linear or flat fashion. Is there a metadata element set that will allow me to capture this relationship and is it possible to display such a hierarchy using a 'browsing classifier'.

In the future, I may wish to extract my metadata as MARC and import it into our library catalogue which is MARC based. I am comfortable with XSL and XML, so I am not anticipating that this will be much of a problem.

I chose Dublin Core because of its simplicity and ease of use. Should I consider other metadata sets?

Any advice would be much appreciated.


Regards,

John
