Metadata quality analysis

OLAC metadata records are scored for metadata quality on a 10-point scale explained in OLAC Metadata Metrics. The score for the above record (along with comments on changes that could improve the score) is as follows:

Component + - Comments
Title   1   0 
Date   0   1  Add a dc:date element (or one of its refinements, like dcterms:created or dcterms:issued).
Agent   1   0 
About   1   0 
Depth   1   0 
Content Language   1   0 
Subject Language   1   0 
OLAC Type   0   1  Add a dc:type element that uses the OLAC linguistic-type encoding scheme to identify the type of the resource from a linguistic point of view.
DCMI Type   1   0 
Precision   0.67   0.33  For the full score, make use of at least one more encoding scheme in addition to the ones counted explicitly in other components of the score. For instance,
  • use dcterms:W3CDTF on dc:date (or its refinements)
  • use dcterms:IMT on dc:format
  • use dcterms:Box or dcterms:Point or dcterms:TGN on dcterms:spatial
Quality score  7.67
