Dublin Core introduces openWEMI for community review, a minimally constrained RDF vocabulary based on Work, Expression, Manifestation, and Item (WEMI) concepts. It diverges from IFLA's library-focused approach, offering broader application in metadata modeling and including the Endeavor class and common properties for diverse metadata resources. The vocabulary, with documentation and a turtle file, seeks feedback via GitHub and a mailing list.
B. M. Watson from the University of British Columbia School of Information wins the DCMI 2023 Student Forum Award for their proposal, 'The Trans Metadata Collective' (TMDC). TMDC intends to enhance the representation and inclusion of trans and gender-diverse communities in cultural heritage institutions.
DCMI is providing a new home for SKOS-Thes, a namespace that extends SKOS on the basis of the ISO 25964 data model. The ISO 25964 standard, published in 2011, covers all aspects of developing thesauri and setting up mappings across vocabularies to encourage high quality information retrieval across networked resources.
Niklas Lindström has been appointed as Co-Chair of DCMI Usage Board, which maintains DCMI Metadata Terms and ISO 15836. He is a consultant with a background in web and data technologies, and works as a systems developer at the National Library of Sweden, specializing in linked data structures, semantics, protocols, and interoperability.
It has been proposed that a very small vocabulary with minimally constrained classes and properties representing the concepts of Work, Expression, Manifestation, and Item would benefit anyone designing metadata for created resources. The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) has opened a community group to develop this core vocabulary.
