The purpose of the DLESE-IMS metadata framework is to describe resources typically used in learning environments (e.g. classroom activities, lesson plans, modules, visualizations, some datasets) for discovery by the Earth system education community.
This framework is frozen and is no longer in active development since is has been superseded by the ADN metadata framework. However, the DLESE-IMS framework is the current metadata framework of the DLESE Catalog System. No other DLESE system uses this framework. The DLESE Catalog System will be upgraded to the ADN metadata framework in 2004. If you have specific questions regarding the DLESE-IMS framework, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The controlled vocabularies are defined in the cataloging best practices for this framework.
Framework in XML
This framework uses a DTD and not XML schema. Since DTD's are not viewable in most browsers, do a right mouse click and then choose save to download the current DLESE-IMS metadata DTD.
