DCMI Schemas

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative provides access to schemas defining DCMI term declarations represented in various schema languages. Schemas are machine-processable specifications which define the structure and syntax of metadata specifications in a formal schema language.

The links below identify the schema languages currently supported within the DCMI Community. If you have schemas for DCMI metadata that you believe should be linked here, please contact DCMI via http://dublincore.org/about/contact/

Brief descriptive data about the schemas currently supported will be found on these linked pages, as well as links to the schemas themselves.
