In this paper, the authors revive proposals for the development of a new 'set' of people-centric Dublin Core elements, based on the existing architecture and success of the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. They argue that the original set was developed for resources, typically digital versions of 'document like objects' (DLOs) and that they included only those elements and terms that suited discovery of such objects.
