Dublin Core

Using simple Dublin Core to describe eprints by Andy Powell, Michael Day and Peter Cliff.
These recommendations are not primarily targeted at the end-users of eprint archives. Rather, they are intended to guide 'best-practice' for the maintainers of eprint archives in order that such systems can be configured to maximise the benefits of a shared approach to metadata disclosure. The intention is to facilitate more consistent results when 'cross-searching' and browsing metadata records gathered from multiple eprint archives. Nonetheless, we would hope that these guidelines to have some impact on the cataloguing guidelines and help sub-systems offered to end-users of institutional eprint archives.
