At 3.2.1.3 table 3 contributor is defined as:



The content provider that makes the record available. For full text items, this is generally the publisher. For A&I-provided items, this is generally the organization responsible for the indexing. This seems like a strange definition for contributor

Submitter Proposed Solution


Use dublin core definition of contributor "An entity responsible for making contributions to the resource." Find a different descriptor for provider of the metadata record.
