From DISMARC Help
The DISMARC search engine carries out searches in the normalized metadata of various distributed databases.
The term metadata hereby refers to the cataloguing and indexing information describing the data items. For metadata harvesting DISMARC uses the international standard “Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH)” www.openarchives.org. The DISMARC OAI-PMH harvester supports the Dublin Core metadata schema www.dublincore.org which has been adapted to the needs of music metadata on the basis of the Dublin Core application profile for libraries (DC-Lib). OAI-PMH enables connecting distributed electronic repositories of many kinds.
The data may be searched via multilingual features and vocabularies. The portal itself also supports multilinguality.
