'Guidelines for Dublin Core Application Profiles' published as a Working Draft

Monday, November 03, 2008

The new DCMI Working Draft "Guidelines for Dublin Core Application Profiles" describes the key components of an application profile and walks the reader through the process of designing a profile. Addressed primarily to a non-technical audience, the guidelines also provide a technical appendix about modeling the metadata interoperably for use in linked data environments. This draft will be revised in response to feedback from readers. Interested members of the public are invited to post comments by 1 December 2008 to the DC-GENERAL mailing list, including "[Public Comment]" in the subject line.
