Title: DCMI Review of Application Profiles
Identifier: http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/2006/09/manzanillo/profile-review/html/index.html

Basic documents for the review of application profiles

-- Dublin Core Application Profile Guidelines http://dublincore.org/usage/documents/2005/09/03/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 http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/metadata/dcmi/term-decision-tree/
