    Crosswalks

    Dublin Core/MARC/GILS Crosswalk
    http://www.loc.gov/marc/dccross.html 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.
