2015-03-30, DCMI is please to announce that the National Diet Library, the sole national library in Japan, has translated the DCMI Metadata Terms and the Singapore Framework for Dublin Core Application Profiles into Japanese. The links to the new Japanese translations, as well as others are available on the DCMI Documents Translation page at http://dublincore.org/resources/translations/index.shtml.
2015-03-30, This webinar with Ethan Gruber on 13 May provides an introduction to SPARQL, a query language for RDF. Users will gain hands on experience crafting queries, starting simply, but evolving in complexity. These queries will focus on coinage data in the SPARQL endpoint hosted by http://nomisma.org: numismatic concepts defined in a SKOS-based thesaurus and physical specimens from three major museum collections (American Numismatic Society, British Museum, and Münzkabinett of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin) linked to these concepts. Results generated from these queries in the form of CSV may be imported directly into Google Fusion Tables for immediate visualization in the form of charts and maps. Additional information and free registration is available at http://dublincore.org/resources/training/#2015gruber. Redux: This webinar was first presented as a training session in the LODLAM Training Day at SemTech2014.
2015-03-16, Being able to reliably and efficiently identify entire or subsets of data in large and dynamically growing or changing datasets constitutes a significant challenge for a range of research domains. In order to repeat an earlier study, to apply data from an earlier study to a new model, we need to be able to precisely identify the very subset of data used. While verbal descriptions of how the subset was created (e.g. by providing selected attribute ranges and time intervals) are hardly precise enough and do not support automated handling, keeping redundant copies of the data in question does not scale up to the big data settings encountered in many disciplines today. Furthermore, we need to be able to handle situations where new data gets added or existing data gets corrected or otherwise modified over time. Conventional approaches, such as assigning persistent identifiers to entire data sets or individual subsets or data items, are thus not sufficient. In this webinar, Andreas Rauber will review the challenges identified above and discuss solutions that are currently elaborated within the context of the working group of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) on Data Citation: Making Dynamic Data Citeable. The approach is based on versioned and time-stamped data sources, with persistent identifiers being assigned to the time-stamped queries/expressions that are used for creating the subset of data. We will further review results from the first pilots evaluating the approach. Additional information and registration available at http://dublincore.org/resources/training/#2015rauber.
2015-03-16, The Program Committee for DC-2015, to be held 1-4 September 2015 in São Paulo, Brazil, has decided to extend the deadline for submission for both the Technical and Professional Programs to 11 April 2015. The extended call can be found at http://purl.org/dcevents/dc-2015/cfp.
The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, or "DCMI", is an open organization supporting innovation in metadata design and best practices across the metadata ecology. DCMI's activities include work on architecture and modeling, discussions and collaborative work in DCMI Communities and DCMI Task Groups, global conferences, meetings and workshops, and educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of metadata standards and best practices.
DCMI maintains a number of formal and informal liaisons and relationships with standards bodies and other metadata organizations.
