Hi all,

We’re currently working to increase usability for PBCore is by creating a standardized PBCore Handbook that collects all extant official definitions and documentation around the PBCore Schema in a single document.

Currently, the Handbook includes introductory materials about the structure and use of PBCore as well as all elements, attributes, controlled vocabularies, and sample records. As members of the PBCore community, I wanted to share with you a draft version of this Handbook for review.

We would love feedback on whether there is anything that you feel should be included in the Handbook that we don't have in this version, as well as whether the text sections and the layout seem clear and understandable and whether you find anything confusing as it currently stands. 

Once the draft is finalized, we plan to add page numbers to the table of contents, color coding for the sections, and an index at the back to make it easier for people to look up specific elements/controlled vocabularies/etc. 

We will be accepting feedback on the Handbook up through July 31st, and we would love to hear any thoughts you have. Thanks in advance for your time and your interest in PBCore!
