Dan, there's a bit of a problem in identifying what is meant by "Dublin Core records".  Do you mean records that are "pure" Dublin Core (i.e., only properties from the dc and dcterms namespaces)?  There are many application profiles out there that use some or even a large number of Dublin Core properties that are also peppered with extensions/additions following Dublin Core principles--with these, it is hard to say whether others would consider these "Dublin Core records".

Hi all

I keep finding myself in need of a collection of real-world examples
of DC usage. I can't be alone in this!

For the schema.org mapping work, and in general to inform discussion
around schema.org about how it might add vocabulary around
http://schema.org/Book, http://schema.org/ScholarlyArticle etc., it
would be great to have a few (10-20, say) examples of different Dublin
Core records. I know DC has been used and extended in all kinds of
ways, from image archives, educational resources, books, OAI-PMH,
articles, etc etc. I just can't easily put my hands on some
illustrative examples of all this. It would be particularly useful to
have a sense of which patterns are most widely used - a theme which
ties in to the 'application profiles' discussion. But just a standard
bundle of basic DC examples would be great to start with - does anyone
have something like this?
