CIMI is pleased to announce that the Guide to Best Practice: Dublin Core is
now available for peer review. This document, one of several important
outcomes of CIMIís on-going Dublin Core Metadata Testbed, focuses on the

experiences of the Testbed participants and are designed to provide
direction on representing cultural heritage resources as currently captured
and described in typical museum collections information management systems.
