Title

UKOLN Metadata Resources - DC

Description

The Dublin Core is a metadata element set intended to facilitate discovery of electronic resources. Originally conceived for author-generated description of Web resources, it has attracted the attention of formal resource description communities such as museums, libraries, government agencies and commercial organizations. The key characteristics of the Dublin Core are: The Dublin Core is positioned as a simple information resource description format. However, it also aims to provide a basis for semantic interoperability between other, often more complicated, formats. The Dublin Core benefits from active participation and promotion in some 20 countries in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. Representatives of the Dublin Core effort have helped to develop the Resource Description Framework (RDF), an infrastructure that supports the coexistence of complementary, independently maintained metadata packages.
