Assessing the Dublin Core (2)
- Dublin Core is
- a useful means by which discrete data types and sets may be described in a comparable fashion
- small enough to remain manageable, yet extensible enough to (hopefully) be suitably descriptive
- a fascinating example of inter–disciplinary and international co–operation
- (if used in conjunction with the concepts of the Warwick Framework) an extremely powerful means of drawing complex metadata and data together, facilitating access and re–use.
