Topic: Using Dublin Core Identifier: http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/2005/05/washdc/topic-userguide/ See also: http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/2005/05/washdc/ Created: 2005-05-12 Modified: 2005-05-16 17:28, Monday Maintainer: Tom Baker For Washington, we should review several revised pages of "Using Dublin Core": -- http://content.nsdl.org/dcub/1._Intro_rev.html -- http://content.nsdl.org/dcub/4._Elements_rev.html -- http://content.nsdl.org/dcub/5._Qualifiers_rev.html Diane writes: "Lots of the changes are cosmetic or editorial, and don't warrant any discussion. I took out some old stuff, like references to our abandoned vocabulary registration processes, and added to the already-present notations on Audience as the 16th element, to Audience, Provenance and RightsHolder as the additional elements not part of the original 15 of Simple DC. "I also revised the piece of RightsHolder guidance that we discussed on the call, and I'd like some eyeballs to review. I also added a bit on the Abstract Model in section 2, which I think ought to be looked at. "In general, I think it would be great if folks could try and look at the document with new-ish eyes, so we can discuss whether this is still a good "entry point" for users. I'm particularly concerned that we have been building up a large amount of technical rich technical documentation, which is referenced in Using Dublin Core, but not necessarily integrated very well. Is this still okay? Is there a need for some middle ground--more technical than what we have already, but still not off-putting for the non-techie? Is that possible? "Another question is the relationship of this documentation to the newly emerging DLF OAI Best Practices documentation (see: http: //oai-best.comm.nsdl.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?TableOfContents) which I've been involved with, which includes a lot of references to DC, as well as other formats. Do we want to link to that, include some of it in ours, ignore it, what?"
