Dublin Core Metadata Element Set: Reference Description

August 29, 1996

See the Dublin Core home page for further information about the workshops, reports, working group papers, projects, and new developments concerning the Dublin Core metadata element set.

This document is the reference description of the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, as elaborated in the report on the OCLC/NCSA Metadata Workshop of March 1995 and subsequently modified by working groups constituted at the OCLC/UKOLN Metadata Workshop of April 1996.

This is a preliminary draft version put in place to test the Meta Tag LINK consensus agreement of the W3C Distributed Indexing Workshop in Boston (May 28-29, 1996). It will be replaced by a more complete document in the near future.
