It suggests providing <em>partial</em> OpenURLs using the DC Identifier, Source and Relation elements together with an associated 'OpenURL' encoding scheme. It summarises the relevance of this technique to support reference linking and considers mechanisms for providing richer bibliographic citations. A mapping between OpenURL attributes and Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (DCMES) [3] elements is provided.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue27/metadata" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue27 regular column andy powell ann apps cornell university d-lib magazine iso mimas niso ukoln university of bath university of manchester bibliographic data browser cookie database dcmes dcmi digital object identifier doi dublin core dublin core metadata initiative html identifier metadata namespace openurl research resource discovery schema search technology sfx software standardisation standards url vocabularies web browser xhtml Fri, 23 Mar 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 780 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Metadata: BIBLINK.Checksum http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue17/biblink <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue17/biblink#author1">Ian Peacock</a> and <a href="/issue17/biblink#author2">Andy Powell</a> describe a proposed algorithm for calculating a checksum for Web pages.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue17/biblink" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue17 regular column andy powell ian peacock ukoln cpan algorithm authentication bibliographic data browser data doc dublin core ftp html identifier mac os marc metadata perl research sgml software stylesheet url web browser Fri, 18 Sep 1998 23:00:00 +0000 editor 536 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Dublin Core Management http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue10/dublin <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue10/dublin#author1">Andy Powell</a> presents three models for the way in which metadata can be managed across a Web site and describes some of the tools that are beginning to be used at UKOLN to embed Dublin Core metadata into Web pages.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (the Dublin Core) <a name="note1"></a><a href="#ref1">[1]</a> is a 15 element metadata set that is primarily intended to aid resource discovery on the Web.
