The DCMI Tools Community is a forum for
individuals and organizations involved in the development and usage of
tools and applications based on Dublin Core Metadata or other metadata
standards that interoperate with and enhance functionality of the Dublin Core.
The objective of the Community is to facilitate the usage and development of applications and functions based on open standards. The DCMI Tools Community provides a forum for two classes of users: tool developers and individuals interested in using tools.

2009-10-8, a new category, under the name of "Metadata quality", has been added to the list of tools. The DC Tools community wants to focus the coming year on tools and methodologies to evaluate the quality of large metadata sets. As managers of metadata repositories are increasingly confronted with thight budgets and accountability issues, there is a bigger need then ever to use tools which allow to evaluate in an automated manner the consistency, completeness and accuracy of existing metadata. Based upon the results of the quality assessment, more solid decisions can be taken regarding the distribution of resources for the enhancement of the metadata. Outdated links on the list have also been removed.
