The concept of metadata used in the SSG-FI project is based on Dublin Core and complemented by a few more elements, As the so-called "SSG categories", statistical data (STATISTICS) and an evaluation of the resource (EVALUATION) have been added. The internal categories are used for database administration only and are not displayed in the SSG-FI system.
The template used to catalog and describe resources is identical in the different academic disciplines involved, except in the classification scheme used. In the Forestry Guide, the CABI subject category codes and subject descriptors, derived from the CABI Classification scheme and used in AGRICOLA and AGRIS databases are used for indexing the information resources.
