Sometimes the Dublin Core documentation uses "Dublin Core record" to
describe XML records that use Dublin core vocabulary, for example:

Those records do use the Simple and Qualified Dublin Core XML Schema <>, which basically layout a list of
simple elements with DC labels that may contain strings and possibly a
language attribute.

I don't imagine "Dublin Core records" exist in the wild, but I have seen
records that include the DC XML Schemas and to make use of the DC namespace.
