Dublin Core Extended

The Dublin Core Extended plugin adds the full set of Dublin Core properties to the existing Dublin Core element set in an Omeka Classic site. This includes element refinements and supplemental elements. See the Dublin Core website, under "Properties in the terms namespace".

If you are using Omeka.net, see instructions for the plugin in the Help section of Omeka.net.

Elements Added to the Dublin Core Element Set

The full set of DC elements are added to item metadata below the initial 20 fields available without this plugin. To reorder the elements in this extended Dublin Core set, see the documentation on element sets..

Uninstalling Plugin

After installing, if you wish to deactivate the plugin so that the extended DC fields are not visible in the items, you must also click the "uninstall" button in the admin/plugins page to get rid of those additional fields. Remember, you will also lose any data from those fields.

The dc-rdf Output Format

The plugin also introduces the dc-rdf output format for expressing Dublin Core metadata using the Resource Description Framework. Omeka Classic already comes with the dcmes-xml output format, which dc-rdf supersedes. To view this output, simply add ?output=dc-rdf to the end of the URL on the items browse and show pages.
