The RIF-CS schema is a data interchange format that supports the electronic exchange of collection and service descriptions. It organises information about collections and services into a format used by the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) Collections Registry.
More information on the RIF-CS Schema can be found at http://ands.org.au/guides/cpguide/cpgrifcs.html.
With assistance from the RIF-CS Advisory Board and user community, ANDS has developed a suggested vocabulary for use with the RIF-CS Schema. The vocabulary is comprised of suggested terms for specific elements of the schema. Use of the ANDS vocabulary with the RIF-CS Schema is not mandatory but is however recommended. Use of consistent terminology improves data discoverability and the precision of search operations.
The ANDS vocabularies are expected to be informed and developed further by the RIF-CS user community. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have candidate vocabulary terms to be evaluated for possible inclusion in the ANDS vocabularies.
