Each term has a unique URI in the namespace http: It is widely used for describing documents and other resources, not only within the library community where it originated. Because the definition of the terms often contains domains and ranges, which may not be compatible with the pre-RDF definitions used for the original 15 Dublin Core elements, there is a separate namespace for the original 15 elements as previously defined: Collective intelligence Description logic Folksonomy Geotagging Information architecture Knowledge extraction Knowledge management Knowledge representation and reasoning Library 2.
Archived from the original on 16 November The additional terms were identified, generally in working groups of the DCMI, and judged by the DCMI Usage Board to be in conformance with principles of good practice for the qualification of Dublin Core metadata elements. When considering an appropriate syntax, it is important to note that Dublin Core concepts and semantics are designed to be syntax independent and are equally applicable in a variety of contexts, as long as the metadata is in a form suitable for interpretation both by machines and by human beings.
Element refinements make the meaning of an element narrower or more specific.
Views Read View source View history. This vocabulary currently consists of 12 terms. The guiding principle for the qualification of Dublin Core elements, colloquially known as the Dumb-Down Principle states that an application that does not understand a specific element refinement term should be able to ignore the qualifier and treat the metadata value as if it were an unqualified broader element.
The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative DCMI  provides an open forum for the development of interoperable online metadata standards for a broad range of purposes and of business models.

Content is available under Public Domain unless otherwise noted. Dublin Core metadata may be used for multiple purposes, from simple resource description to combining metadata vocabularies of different metadata standardsto providing interoperability for metadata vocabularies in the linked data cloud and Semantic Web implementations. It specifies 15 metadata elements properties for describing a resource, which is documented using free text: The DCMI has established standard ways to refine elements and encourage the use of encoding and vocabulary schemes.
This jso was last edited on 2 Octoberat In addition to element refinements, Qualified Dublin Core includes a set of recommended encoding schemes, designed to aid in the interpretation of an element value.
Views Read Edit View history. There is no prescribed order in Dublin Core for presenting or using the 158836. A refined element shares the meaning of the unqualified element, but with a more restricted scope. Because ISO is so popular, it is probably useful for providing high-level metadata of the likes of a dataset series e.

PBCore is also based on Dublin Core. Retrieved 5 April DCMI’s activities include consensus-driven working groups, global conferences and workshops, standards liaison, and educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of metadata standards and practices. Each Dublin Core element is optional and may be repeated.
Entering these will help you to correctly cite the URL. These schemes include controlled vocabularies and formal notations or parsing rules. International Digital Publishing Forum. However, it does not define implementation detail, which is outside the scope of ISO However, because it uses free text and is at a high level, it is difficult to use effectively any such metadata describing an individual geographic dataset, never mind describing individual features within the dataset.
Starting inthe Dublin Core community focused on ” application profiles ” — the idea that metadata records would use Dublin Core together with other specialized vocabularies to meet particular implementation requirements. These are Dublin Core elements. Retrieved 3 April Full information on element definitions and term relationships can be found in the Dublin Core Metadata Registry.

Syntax choices for Dublin Core metadata depends on a number of variables, and “one size fits all” prescriptions rarely apply. Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help. On the “archive form” web page for WebCite it says,  in part: Retrieved 21 April For more details and resources, see: Retrieved 11 November Retrieved 2 October Such a reference model allows implementers to gain a better understanding of the kinds of descriptions they are trying to encode and facilitates the development of better mappings and translations between different syntax.
While this may result in some loss of specificity, the remaining element value without the qualifier should continue to be generally correct and useful for discovery. If an encoding scheme is not understood by an application, the value may still be useful to a human reader. A value expressed using an encoding scheme may thus be a token selected from a controlled vocabulary for example, a term from a classification system or set of subject headings or a string formatted in accordance with a formal notation, for example, “” as the ISO standard expression of a date.
As part of an extended set of DCMI metadata terms, Dublin Core became one of the most popular vocabularies for use with RDF, more recently in the context of the linked data movement.
