News from the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative DCMI Call for Feedback: Mapping from Dublin Core terms to W3C PROV ontology 2013-03-20, DCMI seeks community feedback on a proposed NISO/DCMI Webinar: Deployment of RDA (Resource Description and Access) Cataloging and its Expression as Linked Data 2013-03-20, A NISO/DCMI Webinar with Alan Danskin of The British Library will be held online at 1:00PM Eastern Time (17:00 UTC) on 24 April 2013. Registration for this webinar closes 24 April 2013 at 12:00PM Eastern (16:00 UTC). A seminar at the British Library in April 2012 marked the fifth anniversary of a 2007 meeting at which representatives of the Dublin Core, Semantic Web, and RDA communities jointly recommended that the then-draft cataloging standard RDA be provided in the form of vocabularies and application profiles usable for Linked Data.
Introduction The Dublin Core Metadata Element Set is a vocabulary of fifteen properties for use in resource description. The name "Dublin" is due to its origin at a 1995 invitational workshop in Dublin, Ohio; "core" because its elements are broad and generic, usable for describing a wide range of resources. The fifteen element "Dublin Core" described in this standard is part of a larger set of metadata vocabularies and technical specifications maintained by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI). The full set of vocabularies, DCMI Metadata Terms [DCMI-TERMS], also includes sets of resource classes (including the DCMI Type Vocabulary [DCMI-TYPE]), vocabulary encoding schemes, and syntax encoding schemes.
