The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) often must develop instructional materials associated with its mission to provide essential metadata vocabularies. DCMI undertook an effort to create a consistent framework for documentation that would streamline creation of instructional resources specific to internal tools, processes, and activities. DCMI’s preferred meeting management tool, Open Conference System (OCS), was used as an exemplar to develop a comprehensive and flexible structure for documentation of internal tools, procedures, and activities. The model rests on a solid foundation of theory and experience accumulated by researchers. The resulting integrative review informed development of a theoretically justified and practically useful template for internal DCMI documentation.
