    Dublin Core/MARC/GILS Crosswalk The following is a crosswalk between the fifteen elements in the Dublin Core Element Set and MARC 21 bibliographic data elements. In addition, it includes a crosswalk from Dublin Core to GILS attributes. The crosswalk may be used in conversion of metadata from another syntax into MARC. For conversion of MARC 21 into Dublin Core, many fields may be mapped into a single Dublin Core element.

    MARC to Dublin Core Crosswalk / Network Development and MARC Standards Office, Library of Congress Conversion of metadata from MARC into Dublin Core.
