The standard interchange format: Since now, you can describe your sources following the questionnaire presented here (answer only the relevant questions, repeat fields if necessary)
The technical manual explains how to use this standard questionnaire and links to the international metadata standards used. A very simplified and clear memo is here (link to standards used for each question).
If you use accents (e.g. for French é), it is better to use a html editor (FrontPage, NetscapeGold, ...). You can either keep your standard description on your server (then, the Identificator should be the complete URL of this original metadata description), and inform us on its existence, either send us a copy of this file so that we can keep it on our server.
