"dc" schema that ships with DSpace [note: check against DSpace 3.0, make any update needed and label/link below for 3.0]

    mapping to DCTERMS, the latest recommendation from DCMI       mapping to QDC these columns may no longer be relevant-- were based on our expectation, in August, that we were mapping everything to QDC   mapping to local

n/a n/a   matches accrualMethod     dc.accrualMethod dc.accrualMethod dc.accrualMethod local.accrualmethod Amy: While a controlled vocabulary is recommended for this field, this seems like a local practice case to me. http://dublincore.org/documents/usageguide/elements.shtml#accrualMethod
n/a n/a   matches accrualPeriodicity     dc.accrualPeriodicity dc.accrualPeriodicity dc.accrualPeriodicity local.accrualPeriodicity Amy: The resource may be issued on a regular basis, but the harvesting/addition to the IR may not follow that same schedule. This field should reflect local practice of entry into the IR, not necessarily the practice of the resource.

On the DC refinement with MARC Relator Terms:

3 dc.contributor.author   refines creator or contributor     dc.contributor dc.creator dc.creator n/a   Miller notes of the role refinements discussed in the above lnks: "But this possibility has not been widely adoped in practice or implemented in most digitial resource content management systems such as CONTENTdm, and the examples are given only in XML ad RDF formats" (81).

4 dc.contributor.editor   refines contributor     dc.contributor dc.contributor retain as is; migrate to dc.contributor with roles designated as part of name; migrate to local terms? local.contributor.editor?   May be optimal to migrate to dc.contributor, with recommendation of using MARC relator terms as part of value, to ease eventual migration to dcterms
