    How to include customized DC field values in Rosetta without adding a namespace?

    • Product: Rosetta
    • Product Version: 5.5



    We would like to add some customized Dublin Core metadata fields to Rosetta for searching (Solr), etc.
    For example, we want to add the following legacy identifiers from DigiTool: ingest name, ingest id, and PID.
    We prefer to stick with DC as it's an established (interoperable) metadata standard rather than create a custom namespace.


    To add customized DC fields in Rosetta do the following:

    1. Connect to the Administrative Module and go to Administration > DC Configuration 

    2. Create a local backup on your desktop or network before making any edits (e.g. "webeditor_dublincore_configuration_BACK_20180731.xml")

    3. Add to the <code>dc:identifier</code> local element a dc:terms qualifier and click "Save" when completed e.g.:


          <validationRoutine />
          <correctionRoutine />


    Additional Information

    NOTE: Do not use a period ( . ), a comma ( , ), an underscore ( _ ), or a hyphen ( - ) in the <value> element
