The RDA Recommended Metadata Element Set is the outworking of a vision for metadata interoperability that follows from the FAIR Data Principles and the RDA Metadata Principles. The vision is to define a metadata package for any given use case, map between the package and relevant metadata standards, and thereby use the package as a conduit for conversion between those standards. The Recommended Metadata Element Set provides the superset for these packages. It consists of seventeen high-level elements that group together more detailed elements. In this tutorial, Alex Ball introduces these high-level elements and explains how to unpack them and map them to existing metadata standards.
