“MARC to DC”
“For titles cataloged in our OPAC ( the ExLibris product, Aleph), we have a map from MARC 21 to our internal
METS schema, which we call UFDC Mets. For author self submittals, we currently plan to use a Web form,
which will use basic pieces from the UFDC mets, with a touch of human intervention.”
“Dublin Core”
“Local formats in department or library databases; initial mapping is done by hand but will be automated once
the initial mapping is done.”
“Under development along with anticipated implementation of CONTENTdm.”
