XML: News-Opps version 0.1.01

This page provides links to the XML files (main schema, controlled vocabulary schemas and instance documents) for a specific framework and version number. DLESE metadata uses XML schema and therefore the DLESE metadata frameworks are strongly data typed and are often maintained across several XML schema documents. The schemas for a particular framework are organized via an overarching or main schema (see below). This main schema may call different category and vocabulary schemas to create the framework.

To obtain all the XML schema files as a bundle for a particular framework and version, please contact and request either a unix tar file or a windows zip file. Be sure to include the name of the framework and the desired version number (e.g. ADN version 0.6.50).

Main schema

  • news-opps.xsd (Include this schema in instance documents (metadata records) for validation)
  • news-oppsRecord is the root element
  • No category schemas exist, just vocabulary schemas

Vocabulary schemas

The vocabulary schemas define the different controlled vocabularies that are used by individual metadata fields.
