DLF and OCLC announce the second release of the "Registry of Digital Masters Record Creation Guidelines," available from http://purl.org/dlf/rdm200705. Created by a DLF/OCLC working group, the guidelines are to be used when creating metadata for born digital or to be digitized materials that have been digitized according to standards and best practices with the intention of including the metadata in the Registry of Digital Masters. The Registry is available through OCLC WorldCat.
The guidelines use DLF Digital Registry and MARC 21 elements to provide descriptive metadata and access to Registry materials as well as to assist in the discovery of materials that have been digitized or for which an institution has indicated an intent to digitize at a level such that another digital copy is not required.
