Dublin Core at 21

2016-07-11, Announcing an IFLA Satellite event: Friday, August 19 at 11:30 AM at OCLC in Dublin, OH. The Dublin Core originated in 1995 at a meeting at OCLC (in the very room where this IFLA Satellite event will take place). This special event will bring an historical view of DCMI's history through people who were there when the Web was young and Dublin Core was new and evolving rapidly. Presenters will include metadata experts with long ties to Dublin Core including several who were at the original invitational meeting in 1995. A panel discussion will permit speakers to reflect on activities and trends past and present, and project what the future will look like. Attendees are invited to attend a complimentary reception and special unveiling following the presentation portion of the day. The event is being sponsored by the IFLA Information Technology Section and the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative with support from OCLC. Additional information and registration is available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dublin-core-at-21-tickets-25525829443.
