Jon Udell interviews my colleague Stu Weibel about Dublin Core, Worldcat, and related issues.
On this episode of Interviews with Innovators, host Jon Udell invites Stuart Weibel to reflect on his leading role in the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative. They also discuss how databases like the Online Computer Library Center’s WorldCat – which consolidates bibliographic data from over 50,000 participating libraries – can enrich our experience of using and contributing to the web. [IT Conversations: Stuart Weibel]
Jon Udell has a nice blog entry about the interview raising some interesting issues about the use of bibliographic data and services in a web environment.
