2003 Dublin Core Conference Summary

Boxes & Arrows has the 2003 Dublin Core Conference Summary.

"Overall the conference showed lots of enthusiasm in the use of standardized metadata for future inter-operability between institutions such as libraries, government agencies, and corporations. It was interesting to hear various DC people acknowledge that they needed more awareness of how DC was being used in non-traditional settings and ways, such as in corporations, with hardware, and in conjunction with other standards. It will be exciting to see how Dublin Core metadata and other metadata standards start to share a common ground with the information architecture community."

Postcard From Toronto - Part Deux

A little correction to Rochelle\'s report from T.O., that was Steven Bell, not Steven M. Cohen who joined us at the hectic dinner last night.
I took a few pictures, and had a wonderful time. Toronto is a world class city, if you chickened out you really missed a wonderful gathering ground. I wish I could\'ve stayed longer, but alas, duties home require a quick drive back to the states.
I\'m also happy to report I ran into \"Charles Groatcluster,\" someone who has started no small number of flame wars around here. He\'s much nicer in person!Check out My ALA Photo Gallery to see how things went.
