GILS, Dublin Core and Others

Dublin Core is a minimal (15 fields) generic metadata scheme for virtually any kind of document

GILS represents a more detailed approach, including most of DC, providing greater interoperability

GILS is less bibliographically oriented than (Z39.50) BIB-1

GILS is lightweight compared to GEO (FGDC) and EOS/CIP (which have specific functional requirements)
