Directions
  • Fill in the fields below and click on "Generate Code!" to convert your input into fully formed Dublin Core metadata code. Additional options for the format of the output code are available below.
  • If you need additional copies of a given field, click the plus sign to the upper-right of the tag's name to add an additional copy of it.
  • Click the minus sign to delete any unneeded additional copies -- don't worry about removing tags you don't intend to use, the system will ignore any empty tags (and you can't delete the first row anyway).
  • If you are unsure how a specific tag works, you can click the question mark next to the tag's name to see the tag's entry in Diane Hilmann's wonderful guide "Using Dublin Core -- The Elements."
  • To use a more specific term from the qualified vocabulary, use the drop down menu for the element to select it. To specify an encoding scheme, use the drop down menu to the right of the element to select a valid option.
  • Use the links on the left side of the page to view helpful information on the different vocabularies and, for many, look up terms directly.
  • If you do not need to see options for encoding schemes or the more advanced qualified elements of Dublin Core, use the Simple Generator located here.
