New Task Group: DCMI Metadata Provenance Task Group established
A new DCMI Task Group has been established on the issue of Metadata Provenance. The group aims to define an application profile that allows for making assertions about description statements or description sets, creating a shared model of the data elements required to describe an aggregation of metadata statements in order to collectively import, access, use and publish facts about the quality, rights, timeliness, data source type, trust situation, etc. of the described statements.
DCMI's Vocabulary Management Tool published as an Open Source project
Documentation for DCMI Metadata Terms is currently published as a Web document and as an RDF schema to which term URIs, such as http://purl.org/dc/terms/title, are redirected. The Vocabulary Management Tool which is used to generate these documents has now been published as an open source project on the Web-based hosting service Github. DCMI would like to modify the system to generate the user-oriented Web document with an embedded RDF representation using a W3C standard, RDFa.
