AUSGOV compliance with metadata standards

#1

Hi all, we here at Department of Health are putting together a new GovCMS website and I am wondering who has any guidance on implementing the best metadata documentation that is in line with the AUSGOV minimum metadata standards as defined by our friends ay the NAA. I am a huge fan of metadata and its application. TIA for any guidance on the best way to capture the metadata elements we need to be compliant. Regards, Jenni http://www.naa.gov.au/information-management/digital-transition-and-digital-continuity/information-is-interoperable/metadata/index.aspx

Hey @TheJenster, this is not my area of expertise, but I found an example template from the AGLS site that may help? Anybody else have any thoughts ?

Thanks @TheJenster - that NAA metadata generator looks really useful.

Now that templates are coming into the Design System, it’s possible that standalone pages representing particular content types (Home pages, disclosure logs, etc.) might benefit from including example metadata, too.

Current metadata output in the Home page template example does not yet include Dublin Core or AGLS:
