About GloPAC > Metadata Standards
  • This Application Profile (PDF) documents which terms the Global Performing Arts Database uses in its metadata, with what extensions or adaptations, and specifies how those terms relate both to formal standards as well as to less formally defined element sets and vocabularies. A short essay introduction to the Application Profile explains how it was developed and how it is used.
