Comprehensive level:

  • Denotes assignment of extensive metadata for description and access
  • Explicitly conforms to published content standards but there is no commitment to support any access points with authority records.
  • Does not fully support user tasks

Failure to control access points with authority records inhibits clustering in displays, resulting in multiple sequences for individual entities, such as names of authors, works or topics and a degradation of service to the user. The find task is not fully supported, navigation between resources is compromised and unambiguous identification of resources will be constrained.

Examples of comprehensive metadata may include MARC records, qualified Dublin Core, ONIX or other book seller records.
