VRA Core 4.0 and CCO
MetadataShow full metadata
The Visual Resources Association recently released two new metadata standards for the cultural heritage community, VRA Core 4.0 and 'Cataloging Cultural Objects' (CCO). Core 4.0 is a set of metadata elements and XML encoding structure (similar to MARCXML), whereas CCO is a data content standard (similar to AACR and 'Describing Archives: A Content Standard' [DACS]). This workshop provided a general overview of these standards and demonstrated how they differ in their approach to cataloging a cultural object.
