    230 ===== MetadataFormat ===== 
    231 The optional <MetadataFormat> element can be used to restrict the search to records in the discovery index whose original (harvested) representation was in the format specified. The format must be one of the values listed in the [#metadataFormatList metadataFormatList] available from the getList operation. Default behaviour if this element is omitted is not to restrict the search in this way (and return results irrepsective of their harvested format). 
     230===== MetadataFormat===== 
     231The optional MetadataFormat element enables selection of the XML format returned in the doSearch return DocumentFull/Document element.  The default behavior is to return MEDIN_2.3 format metadata if MetadataFormat is not used (but RecordDetail is set to DocumentFull).  Acceptable values for MetadataFormat can be found in the [#MetadataFormatList MetadataFormatList]

    240241The optional <Scope> element can be used to restrict the search to onr or more of the supported NDG Data Provider Groups, defined in NDG controlled vocabulary http://vocab.ndg.nerc.ac.uk/list/N010/0. Currently supported values from this vocabulary are these are given in the the [#ScopeList ScopeList] list accessible via the getList operation. 
    241242If <Scope> is omitted, the search is not restricted in this way.

     244 
     245==== OriginalFormat ==== 
     246The optional <MetadataFormat> element can be used to restrict the search to records in the discovery index whose original (harvested) representation was in the format specified. The format must be one of the values listed in the [#OriginalFormatList OriginalFormatList] available from the getList operation. Default behaviour if this element is omitted is not to restrict the search in this way (and return results irrepsective of their harvested format).

     477 
     478 
    479479=== !MetadataFormatList === 
    480 (Note this is separate from presentFormatList, to distinguish between purposes). metadataFormatList lists values available to distinguish the original source format of a harvested metadata item. 
     480 
     481Note that MetadataFormatList is used in the RetrieveCriteria element to define the format of xml returned in either the DocumentFull (doSearchReturn//DocumentFull//Document element or doPresentReturn//DocumentFull//Document element ).  This is distinct from OriginalFormatList which lists the accepted metadata input formats.
