Collection and service description update


Juha Hakala and Pete Johnston give a useful update of Collection and Service description within the NISO Metasearch initiative at the DCMI meeting in Shanghai.
Despite several years of activity, it seems to me that the issues discussed in this presentation have yet to come into real community focus. Maybe the NISO Metasearch initiative will advance us further towards consensus. I will watch with interest.
Pete also provides a full and typically clear overview of the work of the DC Collection Description Working Group and the DC CD AP (ummm… that’s the Dublin Core Collection Description Application Profile to you and me ;-).
