Support for metadata standards

Planned "out-of-the-box" standard support in 1.0 (you can always configure others yourself if you are willing to create an installation profile):

Standard Description Support
Dublin Core "Least common denominator" format suitable for those experimenting with cataloguing strategies, or with simple cataloguing requirements. DC is supported at install-time as a configuration profile for item-level (object) cataloguing. The profile will set up fields as per the DC spec with some extensions (ex. for uploaded media). DublinCore/OAI is also supported as an import and export target.
EBU Core Based on Dublin Core, EBUCore is a minimum list of attributes to describe audio and video resources for a wide range of broadcasting applications including for archives, exchange and publication. EBU Core with only top-level elements is supported as an install-time configuration profile.
PBCore From PBCore.org:The PBCore (Public Broadcasting Metadata Dictionary) was created by the public broadcasting community in the United States of America for use by public broadcasters and related communities. Initial development funding for PBCore was provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The PBCore is built on the foundation of the Dublin Core. PBCore is supported at install-time as a configuration profile for item-level (instantiation/intellectual content) cataloguing, and as an export target.
CDWA-Lite/CCO From the CDWA web site: CDWA Lite is an XML schema to describe core records for works of art and material culture based on the Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA) and Cataloging Cultural Objects: A Guide to Describing Cultural Works and Their Images (CCO). CA can be configured to implement the format of the XML schema in its relational database. (For those keeping score: CA does not store CDWA data in an XML format, but will be able to export data in such a format in the first version of the data export feature). CDWA is supported at install-time as a configuration profile for item-level (object) and authority (entity, places, collections, etc.) cataloguing. An option to configure for the CDWA subset defined by Cataloguing Cultural Objects (CCO) is also provided. Will also be supported as a data export target format. This support is not yet fully implemented.
EAD EAD is widely used in the United States as a data standard for finding aids produced by archives, libraries, museums, and manuscript repositories. EAD is supported as a data export target format.
DACS DACS is widely used in the United States as a data content standard for finding aids produced by archives, libraries, museums, and manuscript repositories. DACS is supported at install-time as a configuration profile for all archival levels of description.
ISAD(G) ISAD(G) is widely used data content standard for finding aids produced by archives, libraries, museums, and manuscript repositories. ISAD(G) is supported at install-time as a configuration profile for all archival levels of description.
VRA Core VRA VRA Core 4.0 is a data standard for the cultural heritage community that was developed by the Visual Resources Association's Data Standards Committee. The element set provides a categorical organization for the description of works of visual culture as well as the images that document them. VRA Core 4.0 is supported as an install-time configuration profile for item-level (object) and collection-level cataloguing. It will also be supported as a data export target format. This support is not yet implemented
SPECTRUM SPECTRUM is a procedural and data standard for museums, archives, and cultural heritage institutions primarily in the UK. SPECTRUM is supported as an install-time configuration profile.
