The National Diet Library Great East Japan Earthquake Archive Metadata Schema


To organize the digital materials, such as videos and photos, the National Diet Library Great East Japan Earthquake Archive Metadata Schema (Metadata Schema) used for the National Diet Library Great East Japan Earthquake Archive (HINAGIKU) was based on "The National Diet Library Dublin Core Metadata Description (DC-NDL)."
Although there are some exceptions, metadata of materials on the earthquake disaster can be obtained in Metadata Schema format from the RDF/XML link on the metadata details page of each material. Metadata can also be acquired in batches by using the Application Programming Interface (API).
