The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) has seen a recent spate of activity. The DCMI primarily develops what is informally known as the "Dublin Core", a set of metadata tags for library-type information on Web resources.

The Namespace Policy for the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI), which defines the conventions for XML namespaces used in current and future DCMI work products, has become a DCMI recommendation.

There are also new versions of the following draft recommendations for RDF/XML expression of the Dublin Core:

And those interested in Dublin Core will want to check out DCdot, a Dublin Core metadata editor. As described on the DCdot home page:

" This service will retrieve a Web page and automatically generate Dublin Core metadata, either as HTML tags or as RDF/XML, suitable for embedding in the ... section of the page. The generated metadata can be edited using the form provided and converted to various other formats (USMARC, SOIF, IAFA/ROADS, TEI headers, GILS, IMS or RDF) if required. Optional, context sensitive, help is available while editing. "
