Description

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, or "DCMI", is an open organization supporting innovation in metadata design and best practices across the metadata ecology. DCMI's activities include work on architecture and modeling, discussions and collaborative work in DCMI Communities and DCMI Task Groups, global conferences, meetings and workshops, and educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of metadata standards and best practices.

The DCMI website details the history and rationale of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative and includes a thorough analysis of the metadata standards and guidelines. The site also provides a public space for communicating events, issues and publications sponsored by the DCMI.
