"The Dublin Core: A Simple Content Description Model for Electronic Resources"

7:00 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, 2000

LEXIS-NEXIS, Dayton, OH

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 broad-ranging international and interdisciplinary attention from formal resource-description communities such as museums, libraries, government agencies, and commercial organizations eager to adopt a common core of semantics for resource description.

The characteristics of the Dublin Core that distinguish it as a prominent candidate for description of electronic resources fall into several categories: simplicity, semantic interoperability, international consensus, extensibility, and metadata modularity on the Web.

Ms. McIntyre Colby will address the following:
What is metadata?
What are the similarities and differences between Dublin Core and other metadata standards?
What is the origin and purpose of Dublin Core metadata?
Who uses Dublin Core?
What is the relationship between Dublin Core metadata and RDF and XML?
How do I begin applying Dublin Core in my organization?
