Hi Simon,

I think that an article in D-Lib Magazine from December 2004 had an article just on this topic, but I am not sure how it all developed since then.

Subject: [METS] mapping/crosswalk of different metadata standards

Hello to all,

It may be a little off topic, but I consider it worth a try:

- I wonder if there are any possibilities to formally describe metadata mappings/crosswalks? Best in XML or RDF. Has there at all been any agreement upon a way to describe a mapping/crosswalk?

- Does anyone know a source that lists internationally accepted mappings/crosswalks?
