DCMI Communities bring together people working in a domain with interests related to DCMI metadata principles and metadata best practices and the use of Dublin Core specifications in the domain. At a minimum, DCMI community members engage in "watch & report" by communicating about upcoming events (conferences, workshops and seminars), new metadata initiatives, new metadata tools and best practices as they emerge in the community's domain of interest.
In addition, DCMI Communities may define targeted work with an agenda carried out by Community Task Groups. DCMI Communities are coordinated by one or two moderators. Each Community has a Web page on the DCMI Web site and a JISCMAIL forum mailing list for discussion and exchange of information. Participation in a DCMI Community is open for anybody who subscribes to the Community's open forum mailing list.
More information about the operation of the groups listed below can be found in the document describing the operational aspects of DCMI Work structure: Communities and Task Groups.
The objectives of the Architecture Forum are to discuss and develop a model, strategy and roadmap for the practical deployment of Dublin Core metadata using mainstream Web technologies.
DCMI Communities are interest groups that bring together people interested in a specific topic related to Dublin Core metadata or metadata best practices in a particular domain. DCMI Communities are moderated by one or two moderators. They have a a mailing list for discussion and exchange of information. Participation in a DCMI Community is open for anybody who subscribes to the open mailing list.
