    Guidelines for exchanging event metadata: The Ag-Event Application Profile 2007
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This document contains the requirements and a proposal for elements that can be used for exchanging event metadata within the Agricultural Community. The requirements are outlined and consequently used for the creation of Events Application profile (Events-AP). A standard to interchange information about events is urgently required. There are many aspects of an event, ranging from simple announcement to detailed description with session breakdowns. This document will allow users to ‘kn ow’ about an upcoming event and guide them to the event web site which provides further detailed information. The information communicated will thus remain simple yet interoperable across domains and organizations. Additionally, the document proposes the use of tools such as RSS feeds from local databases to allow timely sharing.

    FAO's experience in metadata exchange from CDS/ISIS bibliographic databases using XML format, compliant to Dublin Core standard 2006

    One of the problems in collaborative networks of documentation centers is the lack of interoperability between the different types of systems and applications used. The metadata is created in various places, time and using a number of tools and applications, data structures, content types, formats, and standards that may vary according to local needs. Exchange specifications that identify a minimum set of common requirements can be used for to facilitate the exchange and re-use of data. This p aper summarizes FAO’s experience in the efficient management and use of multilingual bibliographic CDS/ISIS databases, applying DC metadata standards and tools for search and exchange of bibliographic metadata. It explains in detail different approaches on how the bibliographic data from the CDS/ISIS databases can be converted and exported according to the Dublin Core (DC) and Agricultural Metadata Element Set (AgMES) based metadata set for cohesive and efficient platform-independent exchange of metadata. The second point is how different database applications can be united in a common search interface using DC elements. In addition, export features of DOS-, WINDOWS- and WEB-based CDS/ISIS application systems tools are compared. A number of examples on how the data in various input and storage formats can be reformatted without any modifications to the existing CDS/ISIS database and applications. The experience was gathered while working with FAO’s on-line library catalogue ( FAOBIB) and the International Information System for the Agricultural Sciences and Technology (AGRIS). The solution adopted was to use the Dublin Core (DC) and Agricultural Metadata Element Set (AgMES) based metadata set for the platform-independent exchange of metadata between existing databases.

    Towards a harmonization of metadata application profiles for agricultural learning repositories 2008
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Metadata interoperability allows the exchange and preservation of crucial learning and teaching information, as well as its future reuse among a large number of different systems and repositories. This paper introduces work around metadata interoperability that has taken place in the context of the Agricultural Learning Repositories Task Force (AgLR-TF), an international community of the stakeholders that are involved in agricultural learning repositories. It particularly focuses on a review and assessment of metadata application profiles that are currently implemented in agricultural learning repositories. The results of this study can be found useful by who are designing, implementing and operating agricultural learning repositories, facilitating thus metadata interoperability in this application field.
