DCMI Members provide an important link between the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative as a worldwide activity and the local and regional activities of practitioners. They promote the adoption of Dublin Core specifications, thereby increasing the global network value for all. They help assure the availability of authoritative documentation and maintain translations of base DCMI standards and documentation as appropriate for the locale. Members can help focus a local concentration of expertise to promote deployment and development of DCMI metadata and architectures within the context of a given locale and language environment. As local custodians of the DCMI brand, Members are a critical link in promoting DCMI standards through educational and training offerings, as well as bringing local concerns to the attention of the larger metadata community, thereby improving the international coherence of the overall architecture and semantic content of metadata.
A DCMI Member has a designated geographic region, typically a country, although Members may represent more than one country when the natural interests of a region so dictate.
