Publicly accessible DAP collection records that also use the ANZLIC schema (note, this is a sub-set of all publicly available DAP collections).

Note that due to an error, DAP collection records that use the Marine Community Profile of ISO19115 will also appear under a request for ANZLIC records.



Some, but not all, sets will have all records available in ANZLIC format.  All sets will have all records available in RIF-CS and Dublin Core.
