Non dc metadata can be used in the item import supplying additional metadata files per item and schema.

The files got to be named

metadata_[prefix].xml

. The prefix is the name of the metadata schema as registered with the DSpace instance the importer is used on.

An import directory with dc and non-dc metadata might look like this:

 archive_directory/
    item_000/
        dublin_core.xml
        metadata_foo.xml
        metadata_bar.xml
        contents
        file_1.doc
        file_2.pdf
    item_001/
        dublin_core.xml
        contents
        file_1.png

The

metadata_[prefix].xml

has the same structure as the

dublin_core.xml

. The prefix given in the name determines the metadata schema used whereas

dublin_core.xml

is only used for metadata with the dc schema. So for each non-dc schema it's own

metadata_[prefix].xml

must be supplied.

Note: Make sure that every metadata field you use is registered with the metadata registry of your DSpace instance.
