                                          thereof, by the digitizing/cataloging agency. If no suitable title is available for the resource,
                                          the person creating the metadata record may create a title. If the item is in HTML, view the

                        Date               Date of the original resource
                        Date.Search        Date of the original resource in ISO format (yyyy-mm-dd) for search purpose
        Date            Date.Digital       Creation date of the digital surrogate.
       Format                Format        Refers only to digital resources.              Example: "image/tiff" or "text/xml".
                                           A character string or record number that clearly and uniquely identifies a digital object
                                           or resource. The Identifier element ensures that individual digital objects can be accessed,
      Identifier             Identifier    managed, stored, recalled, and used reliably. Exp: Peabody_Coal#3.tif
                                           This field is required for any record that describes a resource that is part of larger resource.
                                           This includes records describing individual pieces (e.g. a single photograph) and aggregations
                                           of pieces (e.g. correspondence in someone’s papers) that are part of a larger collection.
       Relation              Relation      Generally the name of the collection is entered.

                                          When applicable, use the Source element to cite any other resource from which the digital
                                          resource was derived, either in whole or in part. Some digital resources are “born digital” and
                                          derive from no pre-existing resource; in these cases, the Source element is not used.
                                          Note: The Source field does <not> need to be reserved for the name of the digital image
                                          being uploaded to the CONTENTdm server in a tab-delimited file. Any field name will
       Source               Source        work as long as it is the last field in the tab-delimited record,.
                                          Typically, a Rights Management element will contain a rights management statement for the
                                          resource, or reference a service providing such information. Rights information often
                                          encompasses intellectual property rights (IPR), copyright, and various property rights. If the
                                          Rights Management element is absent, no assumptions can be made about the status of these
       Rights               Rights        and other rights with respect to the resource
