Highlights of workplan 2003-2004
The principal item of the workplan is the finalisation of the Application Profile for collection-level description, together with supporting materials.
Deliverable status, schedules and teams
In part as a result of this interest, further revisions to the DC CD AP have been made, in particular to increase the specificity of some of the proposed properties, and to select or develop encoding schemes for those properties.
The WG submitted two proposals for new properties to the meeting of the Usage Board held in March 2004. One of those proposals was accepted; the other was rejected.
The WG is revising the proposal which was rejected, and is also preparing several additional proposals for consideration by the Usage Board meeting in October 2004.
Work is in progress on the development of usage guidelines, and guidelines on expressing descriptions conforming to the DC CD AP using RDF.
A meeting of the WG will take place during the DC-2004 conference in Shanghai in October. The main item on the agenda will be to review the DC CD AP.
Any problems encountered/remedies proposed
Extensive discussion with members of the Usage Board and on
The WG will seek to address these issues in its revised proposals.
It may be necessary to defer the development of guidelines on expressing descriptions conforming to the DC CD AP using XML until after October 2004.
