Publication Abstract

Although many best practice documents encourage Dublin Core metadata creators to “obey the 1:1 Principle,” this recommendation has proven “extremely confusing” in practice. The impact of this confusion is widespread violations of the Principle that inhibit the ability of largescale metadata aggregations to provide useful services. A preliminary operational definition of the 1:1 Principle that identifies of non-conformant descriptions is explored.
