The PARADISEC catalog contains detailed information about the data stored in the collection. This metadata includes a subset that conforms to the Open Languages Archives Community and Dublin Core Metadata sets (global standards in metadata terminology).
The list below gives an indication of fields in the PARADISEC catalog. If any of the following categories applies to the whole collection, they need only be stated once since they apply globally. Items marked with an asterisk (*) are repeatable so that multiple responses can be given.
