1 DC-Library Working Group DC-8 Ottawa, Canada 5 October 2000

2 Agenda zReview of charge zWhat are libraries doing with DC? yCurrent projects yImpediments to using DC zWhat would libraries like to do with DC? zLibrary application profile

3 Charge zFoster interoperability between DC and library metadata zArticulate library concerns zKeep library community informed zConsider reasons to experiment more widely in libraries zBuild library implementors community zRegister library specific elements/qualif.

4 Library uses of DC z Dublin Core serves internationally as an interchange format between various systems; supports reusability zHarvesting metadata from databases within and outside of library systems zCreate library catalog records for Web resources within local ILS or within CORC zExpose MARC data to other communities through DC zGet data from other non-library creators

5 Impediments to use of DC in libraries z Inability to input records in library ILS zInability to use records in local ILS zLink to authorities zUsed more for specific projects zReluctancy to create simple records zHow to get further use in libraries

6 Library adaptation of DC zApplication profiles ywhat would a library one look like? yAdditional elements and qualifiers xAudience xHoldings xAccess and Use xDistinction and use of relation and source xCompile list of relation qualifiers of use to library community

7 Library application profile zChanges to semantics zRequired elements xTitle xIdentifier Identifier of object itself; what if not electronic? zContent rules zWhen does element become part of DC elements when many communities use it?

8 Deliverables zAnalyze qualifiers zRecommend best practices zCollect examples of DC use in libraries zIdentify, evaluated, share existing DC use and documentation zProvide input in development and maintenance of crosswalks

9 Deliverables zShare existing data with DC registry (e.g. encoding schemes such as LCSH, authority files, other standards) zInvestigate how to provide URI transparency to library database resources (e.g. authority records) zDevelop library application profile yConsult with IFLA WG on metadata zConsider documentation on DC in MARC (template, manual) for library ILS use (application profile with additional guidance)

10 Deliverables zShare existing data with DC registry (e.g. encoding schemes such as LCSH, authority files, other standards) zInvestigate how to provide URI transparency to library database resources (e.g. authority records) zDevelop library application profile yConsult with IFLA WG on metadata zConsider documentation on DC in MARC (template, manual) for library ILS use (application profile with additional guidance)
