innovation in metadata design, implementation & best practice
The Dublin Core metadata element set was published by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) in 2001 as ANSI/NISO Z39.85. The standard has periodically been revised and republished, most recently in 2013.
The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) is a project of ASIS&T—a U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to DCMI through ASIS&T are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law in the United States.
