The LRMI™ Working Group is charged with defining and executing DCMI work on the LRMI family of metadata specifications and the related activities necessary to their stewardship and adoption.

The LRMI Working Group defines discrete, clearly stated work packages that shape the scope and timeline of work at any point in time. Particular work packages may require shifts in working group personnel including both Work Package leads and contributing members depending on the mix of needed expertise and interests given work package content and context. Future working group work is dependent on needs expressed through education community input and subject to interest, expertise and commitment by members of the community to execute the work; and commitment to open review and comment.

The LRMI working group is represented on the DCMI Usage Board by Phil Barker.
