Title:            Decision on proposal for new term "captured"
Shepherd:         Rebecca Guenther
Identifier:       http://dublincore.org/usage/decisions/2002/2002-02.captured.shtml
Date:             2002-07-13
Description:      The decision documented here refers to a proposal
                  considered at the Usage Board meeting of May 2002
                  in Bath.  This document is pointed to from
                  the official list of Usage Board Decisions [1].

Text of proposal: http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/2002/05/captured-date_prop.html

Decision: The Usage Board recommends using the
element "dateCaptured" from the MODS namespace,
http://www.loc.gov/mods/.

Reason: The term is already available in another namespace.
Moreover, the term is not clearly relevant both for resource
discovery and across domains. The element "dateCaptured"
in MODS complies in a general way with Dublin Core
principles and does not conflict with other DC terms.
This decision is supported by the Usage Board decision tree
condition #2 in Section 5.5 of the Usage Board Process (see
http://www.dublincore.org/usage/documents/2002/03/20/process/).
