Dublin Core Terms Registry (DCTERMS)

The Dublin Core Terms (DCTERMS) registry was introduced in DSpace 4. This registry initializes an optional metadata schema, where dcterms is used to identify the namespace. In DSpace 4, none of these fields are used by any of the system functionality out of the box. The registry and schema were added as a first step to facilitate the future migration of the DSpace specific DC schema, to this schema that complies to current Dublin Core standards.

The main advantage of the DCTERMS schema is that no field name details gets lost during harvesting, as opposed to harvesting of so called "simple" dublin core, where the qualifiers from the above schema are omitted during harvesting.
