2. Discussion of KOS Type Vocabulary

  • Current KOS Taxonomy -- **Leader: Gail Hodge**

3. Planning for testing the KOS Resource Application Profile


1. According to the Guidelines for Dublin Core Application Profiles, a DCAP is a document (or set of documents) that specifies and describes the metadata used in a particular application. To accomplish this, a profile:

  • describes what a community wants to accomplish with its application (Functional Requirements);
  • characterizes the types of things described by the metadata and their relationships (Domain Model);
  • enumerates the metadata terms to be used and the rules for their use (Description Set Profile and Usage Guidelines); and
  • defines the machine syntax that will be used to encode the data (Syntax Guidelines and Data Formats).
