It is gratifying to see all of the traffic about extension schemas on this
listserve!! And I echo the good words of Bartek Plichta from MSU: the
meeting last month at Harvard was a big help to all of us. (Thank you
again, Robin Wendler!) Since we plan to start a new round of data capture
next week, we have cooked up our seven revised schemas, and will freeze
them until June:
(1) audio (big debt to Dave Ackerman at Harvard)
(2) image (NISO, sort of, but with some added stuff)
(5) descriptive (for the moment a variant on qualified Dublin Core -- read
(7) digiprov (another big debt to Dave Ackerman).
Get to them from this page:

references to the Harvard meeting in the text and in some added notes in
the linked data dictionary. Comments and corrections much appreciated.
Meanwhile, for those interested in our in-development metadata capture
database, see the links from the "About Capturing" menu item here:
http://lcweb.loc.gov/rr/mopic/avprot/avlcdocs.html#md. Later, when ready,
we plan to make more tools and elements available for those who are
