Thanks to those in the community who participated in last week's call on the DSpace Futures initiative on metadata improvements.
Here is the link to the notes from the call: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/DSpace+Futures
We invite everyone in the community to add their feedback on the proposal in the comments section at the bottom wiki page: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/Updating+the+Qualified+Dublin+Core+registry+in+DSpace+to+the+latest+standards+of+the+DCMI.
The meeting affirmed there is community interest in updating the Qualified Dublin Core registry in DSpace to the latest standards of the DCMI. The DSpace developers on the call confirmed that Phase 1 of the proposal should be fairly straight forward to accomplish.
DCAT has been leading the effort so far, but because of implications for all DSpace users more help from the community is needed. DCAT is seeking developer resources as well as those with an interest in metadata to join in the Phase 1 effort as well as refining plans for the subsequent phases. If you are interested in participating please either email vhollister@... or identify your self on the wiki page (https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/DSpace+Futures).
We look forward to helping the community move this forward!
