I just looked through the schema again and have noticed there is no  
contact defined for a collection. The institutional contact is the  
only one we have. This is probably because the institution was not  
"normalised" before but part of a collection record. So for every  
collection the institution could have provided a different contact. I  
suggest to add a collection contact to the schema (same structure as  
institution, preferrably vcard).
