Abstract

Purpose

This article aims to update an earlier article by the same author published in Library Hi Tech News in 2004 and analyses the failure of the Dublin Core metadata standard.

Design/methodology/approach

The article is a commentary.

Findings

The article finds that the Dublin Core metadata standard is moribund and that a newer, competing standard has rendered it essentially useless.

Originality/value

The paper updates Dublin Core’s increasing obsolescence and will help librarians understand the standard’s rapid rise and slow fall.
