Re: [ARSCLIST] Common database/electronic library interchange format ?

I find the following format works well for all 78s and LPs, too. For how the data responds to queries, see an older version of the data on DISMARC.

maybe you want to have a look at the Dublin Core-based Dismarc profile
While not a complete solution, i find it aims for a useful compromise
between complexity and precision. And compliant with the OAI world.

Yep, certainly a lot more metadata is needed.
And that sadly varies over format too :(

Also, keep in mind that there are at least TWO different forms
of 78-related databases! The first is the "catalog," which lists
the phonorecords in a collection...and thus refers to existing
copies of phonorecords, and will include fields such as "Condition"
and "Price Paid;" The second is the "discographic" database,
which will aspire to list ALL the phonorecords on one or more
specific labels (or of specific genres)! This latter does NOT refer
to specific copies of phonorecords. Note that several examples
of the former can be used in the compilation of the latter!
