The Dublin Core Schema is a small set of vocabulary terms that can be used to describe web resources (video, images, web pages, etc.), as well as physical resources such as books or CDs, and objects like artworks. The full set of Dublin Core metadata terms can be found on the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) website. The original set of 15 classic[3] metadata terms, known as the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set are endorsed in the following standards documents:
ISO Standard 15836-2009
NISO Standard Z39.85
