Apologies for Cross Posting:

Over the past eighteen months the Open Archives Initiative (OAI), in a
project called Object Reuse and Exchange (OAI-ORE), has gathered
international experts from the publishing, web, library, and eScience
community to develop standards for the identification and description of
aggregations of online information resources.  These aggregations,
sometimes called compound digital objects, may combine distributed
resources with multiple media types including text, images, data, and
video.  The goal of these standards is to expose the rich content in these
aggregations to applications that support authoring, deposit, exchange,
visualization, reuse, and preservation.  Although a motivating use case
for the work is the changing nature of scholarship and scholarly
communication, and the need for cyberinfrastructure to support that
scholarship, the intent of the effort is to develop standards that
generalize across all web-based information including the increasing
popular social networks of web 2.0

The beta version of the OAI-ORE specifications and implementation
documents are released to the public on June 2, 2008.  These documents
describe a data model to introduce aggregations as resources with URIs on
the web. They also detail the machine-readable descriptions of
aggregations expressed in the popular Atom syndication format, RDF/XML,
and RDFa.
