Archived from the original on 16 November As part of an extended set of DCMI metadata terms, Dublin Core became one of the most popular vocabularies for use with RDF, more recently in the context of the linked data movement. However, it does not define implementation detail, which is outside the scope of ISO Retrieved 11 November The DCMI has established standard ways to refine elements and encourage the use of encoding and vocabulary schemes.
Dublin Core metadata may be used for multiple purposes, from simple resource description to combining metadata vocabularies of different metadata standardsto providing interoperability for metadata vocabularies in the linked data cloud and Semantic Web implementations.
DCMI’s activities include consensus-driven working groups, global conferences and workshops, standards liaison, and educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of metadata standards and practices. Because the definition of the terms often contains domains and ranges, which may not be compatible with the pre-RDF definitions used for the original 15 Dublin Core elements, there is a separate namespace for the original 15 elements as previously defined: Navigation menu Personal tools English Log in.
If an encoding scheme is not understood by an application, the value may still be useful to a human reader. In addition to element refinements, Qualified Dublin Core includes a set of recommended encoding schemes, designed to aid in the interpretation of an element value.
DCMI also maintains a small, general vocabulary recommended for use within the element Type.
ISO – Information and documentation — The Dublin Core metadata element set
Syntax choices for Dublin Core metadata depends on a number of variables, and “one size fits sio prescriptions rarely apply. It specifies 15 metadata elements properties for describing a resource, which is documented using free text: International Digital Publishing Forum.
It is widely used for describing documents and other resources, not only within the library community where it originated. When considering an appropriate syntax, it is important to note that Dublin Core concepts and semantics are designed to be syntax independent and are equally applicable in a variety of contexts, as long as the metadata is in a form suitable for interpretation both by machines and by human beings.
Entering these will help you to correctly cite the URL. This vocabulary currently consists of 12 terms. The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative DCMI  provides an open forum for the development of interoperable online metadata standards for a broad range of purposes and of iao models.
The guiding principle for the qualification of Dublin Core elements, colloquially known as the Dumb-Down Principle states that an application that does not understand a specific element refinement term should be able to ignore the qualifier and treat the metadata value as if it were an unqualified broader element.
Starting inthe Dublin Core community focused on ” application profiles ” — the idea that metadata records would use Dublin Core together with other specialized vocabularies to meet particular implementation requirements.

The Dublin Core standard originally included two levels: Full information on element definitions and term relationships can be found in the Dublin Iwo Metadata Registry. A refined element shares the meaning of the unqualified element, but with a more restricted scope.

Each term has a unique URI in the namespace http: Views Read View source View history. The Dublin Core Abstract Model  provides a iiso model against which particular Dublin Core encoding guidelines can be compared, independent of any particular encoding syntax.
