UK states support for international metadata standard


August 24, 2004

The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) of the UK's Further and Higher Education Funding Councils and the Museums, Libraries & Archives Council (MLA) today announced their commitment to the ongoing development and deployment of the Dublin Core. The announcement marks the decision of these two bodies to join the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative as an affiliate, representing the interests of the United Kingdom. Under the agreement, UKOLN will act as an adviser in the UK on the implementation and technical development of the standard. The Director of the Common Information Environment (Igeneric), of which MLA and JISC are founder members, will represent the UK on DCMIs Board of Trustees.
