Collection builders use the DLESE Collection System (DCS) to catalog educational resources (lesson plans, modules, data, imagery), news and opportunities announcements, and annotations about resources.
When cataloging, users provide information such as title, description, grade range, URL, subject, keywords, dates, comments, and resource type, etc. This information is called metadata. It is this metadata that DLESE searches over in order to provide access to resources. The DLESE Collection System (DCS) helps collection builders catalog metadata by providing a web-based data entry interface, search capabilities, and the ability to establish collection work flow processes.
