Dublin Core metadata provides a means of expressing the properties of web-based resources in a card catalog-like fashion to provide increased intelligence and enhance the automation of resource discovery services. The Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (DCMES) was the first metadata standard deliverable out of the DCMI was an IETF RFC (2413). DCMES provides a semantic vocabulary for describing the "core" information properties, such as "Description", "Creator" and "Date". The "Dublin Core namespace" refers to the namespace in use by the DCMES.
