Open Context is a free, open access resource for the electronic
publication of primary field research from archaeology and related
disciplines.
http://www.opencontext.org/

Open Context has COinS, and it's one of the first web sites to use
the OpenURL 1.0 dublin core metadata format. So far, few link
resolvers not made by us support this metadata format, but you've got
to start somewhere!

Thanks for posting about this--it is good to see adoption of DC in
COinS, as the type system in COinS is so limiting. Zotero [1] can
import the metadata just fine (I tested it against OpenContext).
refbase [2] uses DC for resource types which aren't in the COinS
spec. LibX [3] can pass DC data to resolvers. While you are right
that few resolvers do something useful with this, 1.0 resolvers (such
as SFX) shouldn't choke on it.
