Dublin Core logo

Dublin Core is used to organize the metadata for Omeka. Quite simply, this is the description of your items. Professors can decide if they want to use standard descriptors or allow students to come up with their own. Keep in mind that these descriptors are what make the items searchable. Misspellings and/or non-standardization can create problems with searching.
