This study analyzes metadata shared by cultural heritage institutions via the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting. The syntax and semantics of metadata appearing in the Dublin Core fields creator, contributor, and date are examined. Preliminary conclusions are drawn regarding the effectiveness of Dublin Core in the Open Archives Initiative environment for cultural heritage materials

Dublin Core Metadata Harvested Through OAI-PMH
TLDR
This paper looks at metadata records created over a six-year period that have been harvested by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and reports on quantitative and qualitative analyses of changes observed over time in shareable metadata quality.
Metadata for Special Collections in CONTENTdm: How to Improve Interoperability of Unique Fields Through OAI-PMH
TLDR
This paper researched 21 digital collections hosted in CONTENTdm to explore the use and issues of unique fields in local context and recommend best practices that will increase the interoperability of metadata for special collections.
Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting, Dublin Core and Accessibility in the OAIster Repository
TLDR
The study looked at the use of controlled vocabulary searches versus non-controlled vocabulary searches, as well as the impact of Dublin Core on the granularity and consistency records, and concluded that institutions should give serious consideration to user experience and repository display before converting records to Dublin Core for harvesting.
Moving towards shareable metadata
A focus of digital libraries, particularly since the advent of the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting, is aggregating from multiple collections metadata describing digital
Principle violations revisiting the Dublin Core 1: 1 Principle
TLDR
A preliminary operational definition of the 1:1 Principle that identifies of non-conformant descriptions is explored and the impact of this confusion is widespread violations of the Principle.
Creating Metadata Best Practices for CONTENTdm Users
TLDR
A best practice document is developed for creating Dublin Core metadata in CONTENTdm and mapping to MARC to share in WorldCat via the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway, a self-service OAI harvesting tool.
Beyond Theory: Preparing Dublin Core Metadata for OAI-PMH Harvesting
This article will focus on how two different metadata harvesters—OAIster and the Online Computer Library Center's (OCLC) WorldCat—transform and present Dublin Core metadata extracted from CONTENTdm.
The 1: 1 Principle in the Age of Linked Data
  • R. Urban
  • Sociology
    Dublin Core Conference
  • 2014
TLDR
The conceptual foundations that led to its inclusion in DCMI documentation are outlined, how the Principle has been (mis)understood in practice, how violations of the Principle have been operationalized, and how the fundamental issues raised by the Principle continue to challenge us today.

Dublin Core use in libraries: a survey
An e‐mail survey was conducted by the Dublin Core Libraries Working Group to collect examples of Dublin Core use in libraries, and to provide input for the development of a Dublin Core application
Analyzing Metadata for Effective Use and Re-Use
TLDR
Using a commercially available visual graphical analysis tool, the National Science Digital Library has developed techniques that allow efficient and thorough review of large quantities of XML metadata, thus enabling the focus of limited resources on evaluation and manipulation tasks that are most important in the authors' context.
Federated Searching Interface Techniques for Heterogeneous OAI Repositories
TLDR
The initial result is promising, showing the benefits of immediate feedback to the user in enhancing the search experience as well as in increasing the precision of the user's search.
OAIster: a “no dead ends” OAI service provider
TLDR
The development of OAIster's system to harvest, store, transform the metadata into Digital Library eXtension Service (DLXS) Bibliographic Class format, build indexes and make the metadata searchable through an interface using the XPAT search engine is described.

These compounds possess prostaglandin-like activity and thus are useful in the treatment of mammals, where prostag landins are indicated.
Lessons learned from the Illinois OAI Metadata Harvesting project
The making of the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting
TLDR
A number of factors including focus on a defined problem statement, an operational model in which strong leadership is balanced with solicited participation, a healthy dose of community building and support, and sensible technical decisions have contributed to this positive response to the OAI.
