Now that you have explained your post, I am now able to read it correctly :)

Thanks for the tip about Dublin Core. I will have to find some time to see how much I can absorb. I suspect a bigger problem will be lack of data to create good metadata from some of the useful but slightly incomplete scanned documents in my random collection.

i believe publisher field was intentionally only for texts and movies. i'll file a report to see if it can be added to other mediatypes.

On the item editing page, the Publisher field says:
"publisher: An entity responsible for making the resource available"

If this text could be extended to read:
... Note that the Publisher data for an image item is not visible to the public.

Thank you. If I'd understood that the public can't see the Publisher on an image item, it would have saved me some days of confusion. There may be other metadata fields with specialized behaviors like this.
