​This guide is designed to add clarification and context to the Open Government Metadata Application Profile (OGMAP), presenting and describing all of the metadata elements that are to be included in the Government of Alberta's (GoA) Open Government Portal (the Portal) with more comprehensive descriptions, guidance, and comparable fields in both the Dublin Core and MARC Metadata Standards. While the profile is specific to the Open Government Portal, it is expected that other GoA institutional repositories will be able to apply this profile to their situation with little or no modifications, to ensure better interoperability between government information systems.
