Dublin Core

A classification mechanism for use with ResourceDescriptionFramework or directly with ExtensibleMarkupLanguage.

Also referred to as DCMI ("Dublin Core Metadata Initiative"), the main website is located at http://dublincore.org/.

Guidelines for implementing Dublin Core in XML at http://dublincore.org/documents/dc-xml-guidelines/

Anyone know whether there are still reasons to use DublinCore, without the use of ExtensibleMarkupLanguage?

Also seeking ROI and other material, useful for developing KnowledgeManagement project proposals

DcDot (http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/metadata/dcdot/) provides an online program to extract information from an existing web page and put into the DublinCore categories.

DcDotExample shows this applied to a (short) page from this wiki.
