82nd IFLA General Conference and Assembly
Dublin Core at 21 celebrates DC's amazing 21 year history.
The Dublin Core originated in 1995 at a meeting at OCLC. This special event will bring a historical view from people who were there when the Web was young, and Dublin Core was new and evolving rapidly.
Dublin Core at 21 presents the future. Hear from the people who are building it.
The Web does not stand still. Presentations will also provide information on the latest metadata standards-related work underway by DCMI (The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative) and OCLC's current work with metadata models, standards, and technologies advancing the state of the art for libraries and archives.
Presenters will include metadata experts with long ties to Dublin Core including several who were at the original invitational meeting in 1995. A panel discussion will permit speakers to reflect on activities and trends past and present, and project what the future will look like.
Attendees are invited to attend a complimentary reception and special unveiling following the presentation portion of the day.
