Hi, all --
We'd like to include in METS documents the administrative and technical
metadata associated with an mdRef'd metadata file. Right now, it looks like
there is no ADMID attribute on mdRef. One would have to use the ADMID on the
encapsulating element (e.g. techMD, digiprovMD), which may not be
appropriate, since the linked ADMID would refer not to the encapsulating
element as a whole, but rather to the specific file within the mdRef.
The METS Board did add the FILECORE attribute group to mdRef, which was a
recognition that one might need to record more information about the ref'd
Adding ADMID would be a logical next step to enable folks to manage
metadata files similarly to the way they manage content files.
Any thoughts? Thanks,
