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 already used by any of the DSpace system functionality out of the box. The 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.
