Document Sharing Metadata Templates

This section of the Implementation Guide describes the templates applied to the Document Sharing (XDS) Metadata in order to meet the needs of the DS4P project. These templates correspond to the project building blocks and specify privacy metadata.

This template reuses Registry-related metadata defined in the DS4P Content Profile:
