What is DublinCore (dc)?

DublinCore is metadata, which is to say data about data. According to the DCMIL

The word "metadata" means "data about data". Metadata articulates a context for objects of interest -- "resources" such as MP3 files, library books, or satellite images -- in the form of "resource descriptions". As a tradition, resource description dates back to the earliest archives and library catalogs. The modern "metadata" field that gave rise to Dublin Core and other recent standards emerged with the Web revolution of the mid-1990s.

DublinCore was started 1995 in Dublin (Ohio, USA, not Ireland!) as an attempt to describe items on what was still the newly-popular and organized internet. Essentially, it works as a modern version of the old style library card catalogs. 

Originally, DublinCore used only 15 terms–which you can see in the "/elements/1.1/ namespace" box here, along with the current list of terms. 

You can see the available dc metadata terms in DSpace listed comprehensively here. 

How does IUSW use DublinCore?

IUSW largely uses DublinCore in DSpace. You can see an example of a IUSW DC Metadata below. Here is the item I am using for an example: https://scholarworks.iu.edu/dspace/handle/2022/13398


To edit, add, or change items in our DSpace, go to an item in DSpace, and select "Edit Metadata" on the right hand side – this will only show up if you are logged in. 

This is an example of what that looks like, with fake data:

dc.description.abstract= The Readers’ Guide to Periodical Literature (RGPL) has be described as a cultural barometer. It supports scholars of history and culture by providing access to ideas circulated via the mass media in earlier times, but its own coverage and indexing practices also reveal attitudes and values toward issues of the time. The Progressive Era (1900-1924) coincides with the founding and growth of the RGPL. Examining how the Guide directed readers’ atttion to matters of sexual and reproductive health in its first quarter ctury demonstrates changes in social attitudes and has implications for scholarly work. The array of index terms required to locate information on this topic indicates both barriers to information access for contemporary readers as well as challges for prest-day scholars concerned with recovering information of the era. en
