Description

The bibliosource element satisfies the source element of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative.

The Dublin Core defines source as a reference to a resource from which the present resource is derived. It goes on to note that the present resource may be derived from the source resource in whole or in part. Recommended best practice is to reference the resource by means of a string or number conforming to a formal identification system.

DocBook V4.2 added bibliocoverage, bibliorelation, and bibliosource to make the DocBook meta-information wrappers a complete superset of the Dublin Core.
