Best Practice Recommendation: The purpose of the Orbis Cascade Alliance's documentation on applying standardized rights statements is to:

  • Assist institutions in doing optional metadata cleanup and enrichment according to the Alliance's Dublin Core Best Practices
  • Promote interoperability within Alliance institutions metadata records developed from diverse repositories
  • Facilitate access to digital content by end users
Important note: the application of standardized rights statements at the consortial level is in early implementation nationwide and may be subject to revision or clarification.
