EML and DEIMS - Mapping Mission

My primary take-away from the EIM 2011 conference was that, while the metadata we (UMBS) are taking in is of sufficient quality for re-use by researchers, it is not rigorous enough to be machine-ingested and we (UMBS) therefore are not well-prepared to move data to third-party databases. The first step needed to remedy this situation is for me to gain a better - more rigorous, if you will - understanding of the EML specification and how our DEIMS fields translate to it.

Of course, I'm not entirely certain how in depth this process will go but I do anticipate a series of posts looking at particular portions of the EML specification and analysing the DEIMS fields and the Drupal2EML module that accomplishes the mapping.

Important resources:
The LTER's EML Best Practices Guide

The DEIMS code repository which contains the content types and modules we use.

The EML specification, but I hope to rely mostly on the Best Practices Guide.
