> Just as a point of information DC does define an audience term:
So, Tom, could you clarify? (I'm not a DC expert, Rebecca Guenther is here
in our office and I go to her with questions, but she's off to ALA.)
As I look at that page, all of these are labelled either "element" or
"element refinement" (or encoding scheme or vocabulary term).
The original 15 DC elements are of course labelled "element" . The others
are mostly refinements as for example abstract refines description. However
there are a few (maybe three) conspicuous elements, outside the holy
fifteen, that are elements in their own right, "audience" being one as you
So this means that DC isn't 15 elements, but now it's 18 (and growing)?
