Namespace Policy for the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) becomes DCMI Recommendation.

Thursday, November 15, 2001

The DCMI Directorate is pleased to announce that the document "Namespace Policy for the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI)" is now a DCMI Recommendation. We consider this one of the basic documents necessary for the effective deployment of Dublin Core on the Web. This document specifies the conventions used for identifying current and future DCMI namespaces. It gives the URIs for the DCMI namespaces and defines the policy for changes to DCMI terms.
