This article presents how Dublin Core and XML technologies were used for organizing information in the project AgencyBeef Cattle, whose purpose is collecting, organizing and publishing in the internet information about the beef cattle supply chain. The result of this project will be a website whose contents are electronic resources (publications web) related to the beef cattle supply chain.The formats and types considered will be as varied as texts, images, sound, software, data, interactive, events, etc. This project aims at developing an infrastructure for creation of electronic resources metadata, having as functionality: insertion; alteration; exclusion; and search to classified resources. It also approaches the need of developing appropriate tools for organization of information.
