While the technical framework Open Archive Protocol for Metadata
Harvesting has been established and many implementations exist, now
the success of metadata harvesting depends on the quality of the
provided metadata. Due to the help of the Repository Explorer by
Hussein Sulemann, provided metadata is now often formally correct,
yet still Service Providers have difficulties interpreting the incoming
metadata; neccessary normalization and the lack of shared semantics
make it difficult to create additional services.
Here we present a Dublin Core Checker, which will not focus on formal
correctness of metadata records but on simple analysis of the content of
metadata elements in order to give Data Providers feedback about the quality
of metadata they provide.
