interface zope.dublincore.interfaces.IGeneralDublinCore[source]

Dublin-core data access interface

The Dublin Core, http://dublincore.org/, is a meta data standard that specifies a set of standard data elements. It provides flexibility of interpretation of these elements by providing for element qualifiers that specialize the meaning of specific elements. For example, a date element might have a qualifier, like “creation” to indicate that the date is a creation date. In addition, any element may be repeated. For some elements, like subject, and contributor, this is obviously necessary, but for other elements, like title and description, allowing repetitions is not very useful and adds complexity.

This interface provides methods for retrieving data in full generality, to be compliant with the Dublin Core standard. Other interfaces will provide more convenient access methods tailored to specific element usage patterns.
