Used to describe resources in more detail than the Dublin Core Element Set (DCMES) allows when used alone.
There are two types of Dublin Core qualifier: the encoding scheme and the element refinement. Further information on these types can be found in the separate entries referenced below.
The DC qualifiers are suggested by working groups looking at particular usages of DC, and proposed to the DCMI Usage Committee who approve them (or not).
Further information can be found on the DCMI web site.
