Technical fields overview
The purpose is to describe technical characteristics of resources whether the resource are online or are offline physical objects. For resources that are online, see the online section. For resources, that are offline, see the offline section.
Even though the ADN metadata framework supports offline resources, the DLESE discovery system does not provide search over such resources and they are not in the library. However, for collections that DLESE provides support to in getting them to NSDL, DLESE passes on offline resources.
To see more detailed information about individual metadata fields, the allowed number of field occurrences, controlled vocabularies or XML structures, please refer to the desired version number of the framework on the left-side navigation menu and then go to the See in XML section.
