innovation in metadata design, implementation & best practices

Dublin Core at 21 (A celebration in Dublin, Ohio)

IFLA Satellite Event. Dublin Core at 21 celebrates DC's amazing 21 year history and anticipates its future. The Dublin Core originated in 1995 at a meeting at OCLC (in the very room where this IFLA Satellite event will also take place). This special event will bring a historical view of key people who were there when the Web was young, and Dublin Core was new, and evolving rapidly. But the Web does not stand still. Presentations will also provide information on the latest metadata standards-related work underway by DCMI and OCLC's current work with metadata models, standards, and technologies advancing the state of the art for libraries and archives. Presenters will include metadata experts with long ties to Dublin Core including several who were at the original invitational meeting in 1995. A panel discussion will permit speakers to reflect on activities and trends past and present. Attendees are invited to attend a complimentary reception and special unveiling following the presentation portion of the day.
