Usage Board reviews Scholarly Works Application Profile and term proposals

Monday, December 08, 2008

At its face-to-face meeting in Berlin, the DCMI Usage Board reviewed the Scholarly Works Application Profile and found it to be in conformance with its current review criteria, pending minor revisions. In response to a proposal from the DCMI Libraries Community for a new property "holding location", the Usage Board suggested the use of the existing property "availability" in the AGLS Metadata Terms maintained by the National Archives of Australia; suggestions regarding proposals for properties "date captured" and "version" were forwarded to the DCMI Libraries Community for further discussion. The Usage Board resolved to work with the AGLS Working Group on finalizing a DCMI property and related AGLS vocabulary encoding scheme for describing characteristics related to the accessibility of resources.
