Dublin core and D Guide - Resources and Review

Article which reviews three years development of Dublin Core metadata, and illustrates its use in dozens of countries and different languages around the world.
This introduction to metadata helps to explain what metadata is all about, why it is needed, and the advantages it offers. Dublin Core, GILS, metadata creation, and mapping are covered, and a list of Web resources and a glossary are included. Available in PDF only.
Describes the principles governing the Dublin Core element refinement and encoding scheme qualifiers. Also provides a summary and definitions approved by the DCMI Usage Committee.
Article proposing that Dublin Core metadata requires a set of elements common to every language. It is suggested that technical terms with no exact translation equivalents in different languages could be explained with a phrase, or new terms could be defined.
Resources about the Dublin Metadata Core Element Set, a simple information resource description which also aims to provide a basis for semantic interoperability between other, probably more complicated, formats and is also intended to provide the basis for resource embedded description, initially with HTML documents.
Selection of promotional material for Dublin Core metadata, freely available as JPEG files for use on personal Internet pages. Icons used must link directly to the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Web site.
Article focusing on the usability, simplicity, and technical feasibility of Dublin Core within the cultural heritage community. Covers the fifteen Dublin Core elements and provides examples from the art, cultural history, and natural history communities. Available in HTML, PDF, and Word 98 format.
Describes the principles governing the Dublin Core element refinement and encoding scheme qualifiers. Also provides a summary and definitions approved by the DCMI Usage Committee.
This service will retrieve a web page and automatically generate Dublin Core HTML META tags suitable for embedding in the HEAD section of the page. The generated tags can be edited using the form provided. Optional, context sensitive, help is available while editing.
Reference description of version 1.1 of the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, summarising updated definitions which use a formal standard to improve the consistency with other metadata communities.
Collection of links to resources supporting cataloguing efforts, including aids and tools like a Cataloguing Terminology Glossary, standards such as MARC, and approaches to organising Internet resources using metadata like Dublin Core.
Details of the sixth Dublin Core Metadata Workshop (1998) which aimed to highlight outstanding issues and resolve them using formal working groups. Provides information on issues which emerged such as standardisation and the role of RDF, the relationship between Dublin Core and other forms of metadata, and related projects.
Identifies and explores the dynamics of the literature associated with the Dublin Core Workshop Series. Concludes that a shift from a descriptive emphasis to a more empirical form of literature is about to take place and identifies future research questions in the areas of satisfying searcher needs, the impact of surrogate descriptions on search engine performance, and the effectiveness of surrogate descriptions in authenticating Internet resources.
The Dublin Core is a 15
element metadata set intended to facilitate discovery of electronic resources. Originally conceived for author-generated description of Web resources, it has also attracted the attention of formal resource description communities such as museums and libraries.
Paper discussing the need for a common metadata standard, capable of supporting the diverse types of material found on the Internet. The benefits of the Dublin Core standard are described in terms of simplicity, semantic interoperability, international consensus and flexibility. Examples of projects using Dublin Core are given.
