Question about Metadata Attributes?

I'm a little confused; When would one use metadata elements with attributes types Entities, Places, Occurrences, Collections, StorageLocations, Loans, Movements, Objects, or ObjectLots, and not just use relationships?


  • Here in french museums, it's generally preferred to use a bundle for condition report inside objects. The bundle contains a condition list, a potential degradation list, an entity metadata element to link to the reporter (an entity), a media metadata to attach the pdf report, and so on.

    It allows not to had a relation between the condition reporter and the object, still picking an entity in the list.

    An alternative would be to have an occurrence for that, and it's been done that way for large institutions, but for smaller one with 4-5 metadatas in their condition report, it's easier to read and using less clicks.
