This tutorial, run by Julie Allinson (UKOLN, University of Bath) and Andy Powell (Eduserv Foundation) offers an introduction to the Eprints Application Profile, a Dublin Core metadata profile developed to facilitate the creation and sharing of a richer set of metadata for describing scholarly works (eprints) than currently offered by simple Dublin Core. The Profile makes use of the Dublin Core Abstract Model and FRBR to group together descriptions of different expressions of a work.The application profile has been developed with funding from JISC and is hoped to form the basis for the UK eprint search engine currently being developed by Intute. The tutorial will be of use to anybody with an interest in metadata, particularly the metadata used to describe scholarly works in institutional, and other, repositories. Those for whom this tutorial may be of special interest include repository managers or administrators; developers or implementers of repository software; librarians; and developers of aggregator services. Those interested in implementing the Eprints Application Profile in their own repository are particularly encouraged to attend.
