*Dublin Core @ 21* celebrates DC's amazing 21 year history.

The Dublin Core originated in 1995 at a meeting at OCLC. This special event
will bring a historical view from people who were there when the Web was
young, and Dublin Core was new and evolving rapidly.

The Web does not stand still. Presentations will provide information on the
latest metadata standards-related work underway by DCMI (The Dublin Core
Metadata Initiative) and OCLC's current work with metadata models,
standards, and technologies advancing the state of the art for libraries
and archives.

Presenters and others in attendance will include metadata experts with long
ties to Dublin Core including several who were at the original invitational
meeting in 1995. A panel discussion will permit speakers and attendees to
reflect on activities and trends past and present, and project what the
future will look like.
