Title: Decision on proposal for new term "version" Shepherd: Rebecca Guenther Identifier: http://dublincore.org/usage/decisions/2002/2002-02.version.shtml Date: 2002-07-13 Description: The decision documented here refers to a proposal considered at the Usage Board meeting of May 2002 in Bath. This document is pointed to from the official list of Usage Board Decisions .
Decision: The Usage Board recommends using the element "edition" from the MODS namespace, http://www.loc.gov/mods/.
Reason: Since the element is defined in another namespace with the same semantics as proposed, this will satisfy the needs for DC-Libraries Application Profile. The element "edition" in MODS complies in a general way with Dublin Core principles and does not conflict with other DC terms. This decision is supported by the decision tree condition #2 in Section 5.5 of the Usage Board Process (see http://www.dublincore.org/usage/documents/2002/03/20/process/).
