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   1   0 
Agent   1   0 
About   1   0 
Depth   1   0 
Content Language   1   0 
Subject Language   0   1  Add a dc:subject element with an ISO 639-3 code to identify the language which the resource is about.
OLAC Type   1   0 
DCMI Type   0   1  Add a dc:type element that uses the DCMIType encoding scheme to identify the generic type of the resource.
Precision   0.33   0.67  For the full score, make use of at least 2 more encoding schemes 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:URI when the value of an element is a URL
  • use dcterms:IMT on dc:format
  • use dcterms:Box or dcterms:Point or dcterms:TGN on dcterms:spatial
