The availability property provides information about how to obtain offline resources. Agents are people, organisations or instruments associated with resources. The AGLS Availability Syntax Encoding Scheme is a method for describing characteristics of agents in AGLS metadata descriptions. Values for the availability property will contain information about the agent making the resource available.

Characteristics are encoded using the Dublin Core Structured Values.

AGLS describes availability or access to a resource using the characteristics defined in Table C1.

Component Definition
personalName The name of a person making the resource available.
corporateName The name of an organisation making the resource available.
jurisdiction The legal jurisdiction of the agent making the resource available Draw values for this component from the AGLS Jurisdiction Vocabulary Encoding Scheme.

address Street or postal address for the agent making the resource available.
email Email address for the agent making the resource available.
hours Hours during which the resource is available at the locations identified in address components.
cost Cost of obtaining the resource.
postcode Australian postcode(s) where the resource is available. Typically used in describing availability of services.

All components are optional and ordering is not significant.
