DCMI logo Announcements

DC-2015 registration is now open

2015-05-15, Online registration for DC-2015 is now open at http://dcevents.dublincore.org/IntConf/index/pages/view/reg15. The conference and DCMI Annual Meeting is scheduled for 1-4 September in São Paulo, Brazil. This year's theme is "Metadata and Ubiquitous Access to Culture, Science and Digital Humanities". The need for structured metadata to support ubiquitous access across the Web to the treasure troves of resources spanning cultures, in science, and in the digital humanities is now common knowledge among information systems designers and implementers. Structured metadata expressed through languages of description make it possible for us to 'speak' about the contents of our treasure troves. But, like all human languages, our languages of description both enable and isolate. The push to break out of the isolation of the metadata silos in which professionals inevitably design, implement and manage metadata in order to discover the intersections of our treasure troves drives much of today's discourse and emerging practice in metadata. The meeting in São Paulo is intended to advance the metadata discourse and practice behind this push to intersect.

DCMI Webinar: Digital Preservation Metadata and Improvements to PREMIS in Version 3.0

2015-05-04, This webinar with Angela Dappert on 27 May gives a brief overview of why digital preservation metadata is needed, shows examples of digital preservation metadata, shows how PREMIS can be used to capture this metadata, and illustrates some of the changes that will be available in version 3.0. The PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata is the international standard for metadata to support the preservation of digital objects and ensure their long-term usability. Developed by an international team of experts, PREMIS is implemented in digital preservation projects around the world, and support for PREMIS is incorporated into a number of commercial and open-source digital preservation tools and systems. The PREMIS Editorial Committee coordinates revisions and implementation of the standard, which consists of the Data Dictionary, an XML schema, and supporting documentation. The PREMIS Data Dictionary is currently in version 2.2. A new major release 3.0 is due out this summer. More information and registration is available at http://dublincore.org/resources/training/#2015dappert.
