Mapping DCMI metadata terms to the vocabulary

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative's Alignment Task Group held its first teleconference on 12 December to discuss a proposed mapping of DCMI metadata terms to terms in the vocabulary.

The teleconference report is available and highlights different potential uses for published mappings:

  • as a social signal that different standards can work together,
  • as a source of documentation for people who work with data,
  • as a source of patterns for search-engine engineers, and
  • as input into the further development of vocabularies and related applications.
