    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;Metadata is essential for the managing and archiving of data. Consequentially, metadata&lt;br&gt;
schemes, which standardise the property names used in specifying the metadata, play an essential role in this. Nevertheless (or because of this),&amp;nbsp;metadata schemes are usually big, complex, difficult to read and understand,&amp;nbsp;and, in consequence, are not used as often as they should be.&lt;br&gt;
This package provides a framework called `dmdScheme`, which&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;&amp;nbsp;makes it easier to develop a domain specific metadata scheme by using a spreadsheet as the base for defining the new scheme&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&amp;nbsp; provides basic functionality for the new metadata scheme,&amp;nbsp;including entering, validating, exporting and saving of the new metadata&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;makies it easier to enter new metadata&amp;nbsp;by using a spreadsheet to enter the new metadata which can than be imported and exported as xml&lt;/li&gt;
