    • the DCMI vocabulary
    • the relationship between terms in that vocabulary

and includes

  • full-text search support
  • the ability to navigate the DC vocabulary using a number of pre-defined queries
  • 23-language internationalization support
    • includes term and user interface translations
    • developed through the efforts of over 40 volunteers

    • metadata specialists
    • RDF experts.
