Dublin Core provide RDF binding

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) have released two new documents describing how Dublin Core metadata elements can be used with the Resource Description Framework (RDF).

The draft documents provide examples of how DCMI elements can be used in RDF documents. RDF is a standard proposed by the W3C web standards to assist the processing of XML; currently XML is readable both by humans and machines, but is not always suited to automated processing.

RDF attempts to solve this problem using metadata and sematics that enable applications to more easily understand the content of XML documents, and to manipulate the data contained within them in a standard fashion.

The DCMI documents are available for comment on the DCMI website.

For more information on RDF, visit the w3c RDF web pages.
