Next Steps:

  • discuss the two new terms with the Usage Board
  • Interlinking with the examples of the new draft of UsingDC
  • Call for Comments

Timeline: The DCLib AP for Bibliographic Text Resources will be published in August/September 2011.

Latest version of DC Libraries Application Profile (DC-Lib)

See the latest version of DC-Lib, which supersedes the draft of 2004.

DC-Lib is a draft application profile that proposes how to use the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set in libraries and library-related applications and projects. It was originally prepared by the DCMI-Libraries Application Profile drafting committee, a subset of the DCMI-Libraries Working Group.

The most recent version was prepared in August 2004 and incorporates decisions made by the DCMI Usage Board at its meetings in 2003 and issues discussed in the WG meeting in Seattle in September 2003. It has been reformatted in conformance with the Dublin Core Application Profile Guidelines produced by the CEN MMI-DC Workshop.
