RE: Agenda July 10, 2017

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.

The views expressed are purely those of the writer and may
not in any circumstances be regarded as stating an official
position of the European Commission.
