Apologies for Cross Posting:

Over the past eighteen months the Open Archives Initiative
(OAI), in a   project called Object Reuse and Exchange
(OAI-ORE), has gathered   international experts from the
publishing, web, library, and eScience   community to
develop standards for the identification and description  
of aggregations of online information resources.  These
aggregations,   sometimes called compound digital objects,
may combine distributed   resources with multiple media
types including text, images, data, and   video.  The goal
of these standards is to expose the rich content in  
these aggregations to applications that support authoring,
deposit,   exchange, visualization, reuse, and
preservation.  Although a
motivating use case for the work is the changing nature of
scholarship   and scholarly communication, and the need
for cyberinfrastructure to   support that scholarship, the
intent of the effort is to develop   standards that
generalize across all web-based information including  
the increasing popular social networks of web 2.0.

The beta version of the OAI-ORE specifications and
implementation   documents are released to the public on
June 2, 2008.  These documents   describe a data model to
introduce aggregations as resources with URIs   on the
web. They also detail the machine-readable descriptions of
  aggregations expressed in the popular Atom syndication
format, in RDF/  XML, and RDFa.

other documents   is located at
