Expressing Dublin Core using Topic Maps

Steve Pepper


The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative is an open organization engaged in the development of interoperable online metadata standards that support a broad range of purposes and business models. The Dublin Core Metadata Element Set and other vocabularies developed by DCMI are defined as abstract models which may be expressed in any number of different syntaxes, and recommendations exist for expressing them in HTML, XML and RDF. ISO recently approved a new work item for a Technical Report on Expressing Dublin Core Metadata using Topic Maps. This presentation surveys previous work in the field and presents a proposal for consideration by the ISO committee.
