Dublin Core Grammatical Principles

When the DCMI Usage Board was founded in 2001, it formulated DCMI Grammatical Principles as a point of reference for vocabulary maintenance decisions. The principles, which followed concepts, that had emerged in early Dublin Core workshops, such as Element, Qualifier, and Encoding Scheme, were superseded in 2005 by the DCMI Abstract Model, which was based more explicitly on RDF.
