The Metadata Repository (MDR)

The MIRACUM Metadata Repository serves the harmonization of data content in the MIRACUM consortium. For this purpose it contains a collection of metadata (definitions of data elements compatible to the ISO/IEC 11179 standard) for the data elements included in the MIRACUM DIC research repositories. Those are defined compatible to the definition of the core data set defined by the BMBF MI-I NSG working group interoperability. In defining the data elements, it is important that their meaning is described accurately and that existing data elements are used if possible.
