Summary/Abstract: DCMI Metadata Terms is an up-to-date specification of all metadata terms maintained by the Dublin Core Metadata initiative. Included are the fifteen terms of the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (v. 1.1). The hierarchy and appropriate linking between the terms have been created. The number of subject elements has increased. Partly it is the refinements of the basic elements but some of them are completely new. although the conversion into and from MARC fields is already possible, some difficulties are encountered and need to be solved. Usage of the DCMI Metadata Terms has not become widespread yet, however, the elements enter the structures of the catalogs.
