Meeting minutes available: DCMI Task Group on Core property mappings

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative's Alignment Task Group held its first teleconference on 12 December to discuss a proposed mapping of DCMI metadata terms to terms in the vocabulary. The teleconference report is available and highlights different potential uses for published mappings: as a social signal that different standards can work together, as a source of documentation for people who work with data, as a source of patterns for search-engine engineers, and as input into the further development of vocabularies and related applications.
