The Canadiana Metadata Repository format (CMR) is used internally as an intermediary format for both Canadiana's own metadata and metadata supplied by contributors for use in the Canadiana Metadata Repository and the Discovery Portal.
Contributors who wish to add their metadata to the CMR are not required to submit their metadata in the CMR format, but those who wish to do so may download a copy of the XML schema and best practices documentation for more information.
For more information about CMR or contributing your metadata to the repository, contact us.
