About Dublin Core
The collaboratively developed Dublin Core <http://dublincore.org/documents/dces/> is an ANSI-approved, internationally accepted metadata standard for describing electronic information. It includes 15 data elements for describing and organizing electronic resources to make them easier to find and access over the Web. Dublin Core elements can be extended to meet the special needs of individual disciplines while promoting interoperability among disciplines. A significant and growing number of people, organizations <http://dublincore.org/about/participants/> and governments <http://dublincore.org/news/adoption/> use the Dublin Core and participate in DCMI activities.
OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. <http://www.oclc.org/home/> is a not-for-profit, global cooperative of libraries, specializing in metadata services. OCLC is DCMI’s current host and supports the costs of the DCMI directorate.
