2003 Dublin Core conference: Supporting communities of discourse and practice – Metadata research & applications. “Overall the conference showed lots of enthusiasm in the use of standardized metadata for future inter-operability between institutions such as libraries, government agencies, and corporations. It was interesting to hear various DC people acknowledge that they needed more awareness of how DC was being used in non-traditional settings and ways, such as in corporations, with hardware, and in conjunction with other standards. It will be exciting to see how Dublin Core metadata and other metadata standards start to share a common ground with the information architecture community.” (Madonnalisa Gonzales-Chan and Sarah Rice – Boxes and Arrows)… [InfoDesign: To Surf The Community]
