Dublin Core is a 15-element metadata element set intended to facilitate discovery of electronic resources
A metadata element set primarily intended for describing Internet resources.
Dublin Core is shorthand for the Dublin Metadata Core Element Set which is a core list of metadata elements agreed at the OCLC/NCSA Metadata Workshop in Dublin, Ohio, in March 1995. The Dublin Core is positioned as a simple information resource description. However, it also aims to provide a basis for semantic interoperability between other, probably more complicated, formats. (see Metadata and Z39.50).
