Commentary by Stephen Downes

The IMS Technical Board has accepted the Digital Repositories Interoperability (DRI) v1.0 Public Draft. According to the email note sent yesterday by Norm Friesen to the Standards mailing list, "the specification outlines ways of sharing metadata and digital resources between networked databases. The specification attempts to accommodate both accepted means of accomplishing this (e.g. Z39.50, FTP) as well as relevant, emerging technologies (e.g. SOAP, XQuery)." The standard consists of three documents: the core information model, the XML binding specification, and the best practices and implementation guide.
