innovation in metadata design, implementation & best practices

Title: DCMI Review of Application Profiles

Basic documents for the review of application profiles

-- Dublin Core Application Profile Guidelines

  Changes needed:
  -- Strengthen the requirement of assigning URIs to any
     non-previously-existing terms.
  -- Other changes to the Guidelines may be necessary to
     bring this into line with the Abstract Model (e.g., to
     distinguish between Value Strings and Value URIs as 
     in the draft Collection Description profile).

-- DCMI-compliant 'term' decision tree
