From JISC Standards Catalogue
- Dublin Core
- Metadata Standards
- Dublin Core is a metadata standard made up of three distinct components: an abstract model which describes the construction of metadata descriptions; a set of vocabularies that provide terms which are referenced in DC metadata descriptions; a set of binding specifications that describe how DC metadata descriptions may be serialised.
- New terms are regularly added to the metadata vocabularies maintained by DCMI, under the control of the DCMI Usage Board.
- Dublin Core has its origins in workshops held in the mid 1990s. It is an important standard within the context of JISC development programmes.
- Risk Assessment
- Dublin Core plays a key role in many development areas.
- Take-up Elsewhere
