ContentDM Project experience as student. Two collections of image records were formed using Dublin Core terms and another using a VRA Core schema. For VRA Core records I incorporated some local terms from the Murdoch Munro Collection (1914-1919) which is described using v. 4.0. However XML records were exported in the flat structure of VRA Core v. 3.0. Image records were created using Cataloging Cultural Objects guidelines (CCO).
