Proposed XML Schema for Qualified Dublin Core is now available for Comment

Thursday, July 25, 2002

A small group has been working together to formulate a proposed XML schema for qualified Dublin Core. This work builds on a number of efforts including the joint work by the OAI (http://www.openarchives.org) and DCMI that led to the release of an XML schema for unqualified Dublin Core at http://dublincore.org/schemas/xmls/simpledc20020312.xsd, and the metadata work within the Harmony Project (http://metadata.net/harmony).

The proposal is available at http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/metadata/dcmi/xmlschema/.

Comments on this proposal can be posted on the DC-Architecture list until 16 August 2002. [More information]
