Keyword List (coming soon)
This is a list of all keywords used in the MathGuide. The keywords are searchable through MathGuide search options.
The concept of metadata used in the SSG-FI project is based on Dublin Core and complemented by a few addiditional elements, e.g. statistical data (STATISTICS) and an evaluation of the resource (EVALUATION) have been added. The internal categories are used for database administration only and are not displayed in the SSG-FI system.
The template used to catalog and describe resources is identical in the different academic disciplines involved, with one exception: the primary subject classification scheme.
In the MathGuide the internationally accepted MSC is used.
Due to the lack of a similarly accepted universal classification scheme in the other subjects, a local classification system (GOK) is used as a primary scheme, and internationally or nationally known schemes (DDC and BK) are used as a secondary classification.
