Ratings use in annotation 1.0.00
In the DLESE annotation 1.0.00 metadata framework, there is the ability to provide ratings. To accommodate the many different styles of rating or review that collections may use, the metadata framework has a generic rating controlled vocabulary. A collection builder must describe, in their collection scope statement, how the ratings controlled vocabulary is being used. That is, what meaning is associated with each controlled vocabulary term of One star, Two start etc. This page provides examples of possible different rating styles and shows the definitions that would be associated with each rating controlled vocabulary term. The one requirement in using this controlled vocabulary is that the term One star is always considered lower or worse and term Five star. Collection builders can define their own rating styles as long as they provide definitions, otherwise such information will not be accessioned in the library.
Style 1: Use recommendations
Style 2: Overall rating
Style 3: NetFlix style
