Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) is pleased to announce that DC-2010 will take place 20-22 October 2010 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. The conference will be held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) which is scheduled for 22-27 October 2010 in the same location.
Since 2001, the DCMI Conferences and Workshop Series has been called "The International Conference on DublinCore and Metadata Applications". Conferences include a Tutorial track, a peer-reviewed Conference track, Special Sessions and Community meetings and are attended by hundreds of experts from around the world.
Conference proceedings are published in the DCMI Conference Papers at purl.org/dcpapers. More information about the Conference series is available at dublincore.org/workshops/

Introduction to Best Practices Work
Introduces the Digital Library and National Science Digital Library sponsored Best Practices for OAI Data Provider Implementations and Shareable Metadata . Includes the scope, structure, and target audience for this document.
General Competencies for OAI Data Providers
These are general areas of competency that are necessary before the OAI protocol can be implemented and used successfully. Both data and service providers should be conversant with the issues presented here. In many ways they represent the minimum of proficiency that is necessary to be a 'good' OAI data provider.
Best Practices for OAI Data Provider Implementations
Best practices for OAI data providers, particularly how the OAI protocol is implemented. Also included are guidelines for some of the optional pieces of the OAI protocol including sets, branding, rights, and use of the about containers. Please note that metadata guidelines (both technical and content based) are included
This document provides guidelines for capturing bibliographic citation information within a Dublin Core description. It focuses primarily on:
* bibliographic citations for journal articles, this being the most common genre for which such description is required, but guidelines for other genre are also given
* bibliographic citations for a resource within its own metadata, but some guidelines for capturing references to other resources are also indicated
* qualified Dublin Core descriptions, though some suggestions for capturing this information in simple Dublin Core are also given
In addition to a need to describe bibliographic citation information for discovery and for reading by humans after retrieval of a record, some applications have a requirement to encode this information in a format suitable for machine reading. These guidelines suggest the use of descriptions taken from the OpenURL Framework standard (Z39.88-2004) , rather than inventing an alternative DCMI syn
