Introduction

This document is an authoritative specification of all metadata terms maintained by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative in all of their historical versions.

In addition to the attributes used to describe terms in "DCMI Metadata Terms" [TERMS], this document includes additional information related to the versioning history of individual terms:

Namespace: The DCMI Namespace within which the term is defined.
Date Issued: Date on which a term was first declared.
Date Modified: Date on which a term description was subsequently modified.
Decision: A Usage Board decision with regard to a description of a term.
Replaces: The immediately precedent historical description of a term.
Is Replaced By: The immediately subsequent historical description of a term.
Status: Status assigned to the term by the DCMI Usage Board.
Qualifies: A term qualified by an Encoding Scheme. (No longer used as of 2008-01-14.)

Temporal coverage refers to what the resource is about rather than when it was created or made available (the latter belonging in the Date element). Temporal coverage is typically specified using named time periods (e.g., Neolithic) or the same date/time format [W3CDTF] as recommended for the Date element.
