This is one way to do it, but my understand is that Dublin Core is
less granular then PBCore. If I'm correct, you will loss some context
since you have a "lossy" conversion of your metadata. In many cases
this might not matter or be much of a concern, however in some cases
this might be a problem. I'd check to make sure the lossy-ness isn't
an issue for the specific collection in question before doing a
PBCore>Dublin Core>MARC 21 conversion. If it is, I'd try figure out a
way to create my own crosswalk using the Dublin Core one as a a
