About Dublin Core and

the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative

DC-2004 @ Shanghai Library


Origins of dublin core
Origins of Dublin Core

  • October 1994, brainstorm at 2nd WWW Conference, Chicago

  • March 1995, NCSA/OCLC workshop in Dublin, Ohio

  • Identified the need for a metadata “Core”: small, common set to describe Web content to help discovery

DC-2004 @ Shanghai Library


Status of dublin core
Status of Dublin Core

  • Since 1995, 11 workshops/conferences held

  • Many resources have Dublin Core metadata, we do not know how many

  • 2003: ISO ratifies Dublin Core metadata as International Standard 15836

  • Metadata ‘terms’ and implementation guidelines on DCMI Web site

Highlights of dublin core
Highlights of Dublin Core

  • Simple solution for basic interoperability

  • Minimise resources to create metadata

  • Facilities to add local extensions

  • Often used for ‘controlled collections’

  • General search engines consider hybrid solutions (full text and metadata from trusted sources)

DC-2004 @ Shanghai Library


Dcmi mission and scope
DCMI Mission and Scope

  • Facilitate resource discovery by:

    • Standards for discovery across domains

    • Frameworks for interoperability

    • Facilitating development of community profiles

  • Activities:

    • Standards development: workshops, working groups

    • Tools and infrastructure, including Registry

    • Outreach, training, liaison with other metadata activities

Dcmi work structure
DCMI work structure

  • DCMI’s three ‘I’s:

    • Independent

    • International

    • Influencable – open and consensus-driven

  • Work takes place in Working Groups around certain technical themes or domain interests – anyone can participate

DC-2004 @ Shanghai Library


Dcmi community
DCMI Community

  • Many domains represented: archives, broadcasting, corporate, education, libraries, environment, government, etc. etc.

  • 20 working groups

  • 3,300 subscribers to working group list and DC-General
