Archival description in edit mode: all information areas collapsed

ICA-AtoM includes a template for describing resources using the the unqualified Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, Version 1.1. This section describes how to create, edit and delete archival descriptions using the Dublin Core template. The Data entry pages listed below give detailed notes and explanations on every field included on the edit screen; where there is a one-to-one correspondence between a Dublin Core data element and an ICA-AtoM field, the note typically just gives the Dublin Core rule verbatim.


Creating, editing and deleting are the same for Dublin Core and ISAD(G). Please go to:

UM-3.1.1 Create a new archival description

UM-3.1.2 Edit an existing archival description
