|Charter:||The DCMI User Guide Task Group aims to revise the popular but outdated document "Using Dublin Core".|
The user guide for Dublin Core — Diane Hillmann's "Using Dublin Core" — was first drafted in January 1998 and last revised in November 2005. The user guide remains one of the most popular documents on the DCMI Web site, attesting to a strong user demand for such introductory materials.
Recognizing that many aspects of the user guide are in need of revision — not just points of detail and links to external documents, but more fundamental points related to the difference between "legacy" and "semantic" approaches to Dublin Core metadata, the Usage Board put the user guide on the agenda of its face-to-face meeting in Seoul of 16 October 2009 and noted the following:
The editors will work on the new draft user guide on the Usage Board wiki . The existing mailing list for the Glossary Task Group will be used for discussion.
