The International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) invites 
comments on the first public draft of:

   Common Components Library Specification
   http://iptc.org/pdl.php?fn=DRAFT-NAR_1.0-spec-CoCo-LibSpec_2.pdf
   13 July 2005

This document describes the Administrative and Descriptive Metadata 
components of the News Structure Model.  It specifies the semantics 
of common metadata elements for News, including some Dublin Core 
elements, eg:
   dc:audience
   dc:created
   dc:creator
   dc:contributor
   dc:description
   dc:language
   dc:subject
   dc:title
as well as additional elements, eg:
   genre
   infoSource
   service
   slugline

We decided to create genre rather than use dc:type as there isn't a 
good enough semantic match.  For the same reason, we decided to 
create infoSource rather than use dc:source.

Some of the metadata elements have been given specific qualifiers:

   role -- for dc:creator and dc:contributor

   exclude and significance -- for dc:audience

The Common Components Library Specification follows on from the 
recently released:
