I agree with Makx & Phil that it would be preferable to consider whether a catalogue should include records of resources which are not datasets.

As a starting point, it may be beneficial to look at examples from existing standards. UC ID20 [1] describes how this is dealt with in two of them, namely, ISO 19115 and DataCite.
