Abstract


The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) has formed a team to design and implement a Dublin Core-based metadata schema to enhance the public's ability to retrieve pertinent public health information on the organization's Web site. The team decided to use the DC schema because it is a de facto standard and because of its flexibility. With a little customization the team has created an NIEHS-DC metadata schema. Using this schema, Web page content creators can produce metadata that is then stored in XML files.
