10. Dublin Core Metadata
WG3 requests that SC34 propose a New Work Item for a Technical Report on a method for expressing Dublin Core metadata using Topic Maps (N758) (NWI), N759 (dc.xtmm and dc.ltmm).
WG3 further requests that SC34 establish a liaison with the W3C in order to ensure that this method is compatible with the method used for expressing Dublin Core metadata using RDF. This liaison should also be involved in the ongoing work in the W3C on RDF/Topic Maps Interoperability.
11. Repositories for Published Subjects
WG3 instructs the convenor of WG3 to initiate a joint activity with the W3C and OASIS to codify and disseminate the principles of Published Subjects, originally developed as part of ISO 13250 (under the name Public Subjects) and further refined by the OASIS Published Subject TC.
WG3 further requests that Prof. Sam Oh prepare a draft proposal for a distributed repository mechanism for Published Subjects with a view to a possible Technical Report.
