Each item in the collection is described using metadata terms defined by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI). The metadata were run through the reconciliation process in OpenRefine to assign (and create if necessary) Wikidata Q identifiers as Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) for named entities such as persons, organizations, locations, events, and topics, to distinguish between entities with the same name and to combine name variants.

Please note that this metadata index is by no means exhaustive. We therefore encourage you to explore the database using the full text search, for example.
