At last, it is official: “effective October 23, 2014, leadership and governance of the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) [...] have transferred from the Association of Educational Publishers and Creative Commons to the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI).” This represents the end of LRMI as a project, and the start of it as a member of the family of stable-but-evolving educational metadata specifications, one which is maintained under the governance protocols of DCMI. This does not mean that LRMI is being merged in some way with Dublin Core’s well known metadata element set or terms; DCMI is more than its specifications, it is (as it says on its website banner, with my emphasis) a metadata community “supporting innovation in metadata design, implementation and best practices”. The longstanding high regard with which the DC Metadata Element Set and DC Terms are held is testament to the care and expertise that the DCMI community devotes to specification development and curation. LRMI will now benefit from that same care and expertise. It will also benefit from representation among other educational technology and metadata specification and standardization bodies, for example through the Digital Learning Metadata Alliance.
