DCMI Date WG workplan 2003/2004:

  1. Investigate options to provide for the interoperable representation of commonly-recorded dates which cannot be satisfactorily represented using ISO 8601 Data elements and interchange formats - Information interchange - Representation of dates and times, including the following categories of dates:
  • B.C.E. dates [DC-Lib; DC CLD WG]
  • Questionable dates [DC-Lib]
  • Approximate dates [DC-Lib]
  • Open-ended date ranges [DC CLD WG]
  • Non-Gregorian dates
  • Large dates (e.g., geologic periods, astronomical time)
  1. Consider potential additional refinements for DC Date:
  • Date captured [DC-Lib]
  1. Consider potential additional schemes for DC Date and/or DC Coverage:
  • ISO 8601 [DC-Lib]
  • Any additional schemes that arise from work item one
