Role Properties for Dublin Core

The DCMI Usage Board, together with the Network Development and MARC Standards Office of the Library of Congress, have announced the availability of a sub-set of MARC Relator terms as role properties which refine the "agent" elements of Dublin Core (Creator, Contributor, and Publisher). The use of MARC Relator terms will allow designers of Dublin-Core-based metadata applications to distinguish between different types of Contributor, such as Illustrator or Translator (see guidelines). For more information see MARC Relator terms and Dublin Core.
