Open eBook announces final version of their new 1.0 specification
Monday, September 27, 1999
One element of the Open eBook Initiative is a specification for eBook file and format structure based on HTML and XML. It is important to note that Dublin Core is the metadata standard being promoted in the specification.
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.
The Dublin Core Metadata Registry is hosted by the Research Center for Knowledge Communities at the University Of Tsukuba, Japan.
