Metadata in SobekCM 1)Metadata Architecture 2)METS 3)MODS 4)Extension Schemas 5)VRACore Example
Metadata Architecture METS Wrapper MODS (or MARC, DC) Additional custom metadata VRA Core Darwin Core e tc..
METS M etadata E ncoding & T ransmission S tandard Standard by Library of Congress (2001) Wrapper standard that accepts any XML schemas Contains Information about the METS file in the metsHeader Bibliographic data in the dmdSec section(s) Administrative information (technical, rights, etc..) in the amdSec section(s) List of all files grouped by type in the fileSec section Divisions/pages (i.e., table of contents) in the structMap section
MODS M etadata O bject D escription S tandard Standard by Library of Congress ( 2002) De facto standard for digital libraries (METS/MODS) Positives Can handle a (large) subset of MARC tags Handles complex objects and can easily be extended Negatives Hard round trip portability from MARC MODS MARC without losing some refinements
Extension Metadata Modules Core brain of SobekCM with main metadata elements represented (based on MODS originally) Satellite extension metadata modules to add functionality Out of the box SobekCM supports 10 extension metadata modules
Extension Metadata Modules Click to view full version
Extension Metadata Modules DAITSS ( Archiving schema from FLVC ) DarwinCore (Zoological taxonomy) EAD ( Finding guides ) ETD ( Electronic theses and dissertations ) GML ( Geospatial metadata ) IEEELOM (Learning objects metadata) Oral history (custom) PALMM (deprecating) Performing arts RightsMD ( detailed access rights or embargo information ) VRACore ( visual/museum materials )
VRACore Example V isual R esource A ssociation Core Metadata Developed in 1996 by Visual Resource Association Used for describing visual/cultural materials Includes standard DC tags Date, title, description, rights, subjects, etc.. Also more unique tags Cultural context Style Technique Measurements (detailed) Etc..
VRACore Example Pre existing fields not duplicated Date, title, description, rights, subjects, etc.. New objects / fields added Cultural context Style Technique Measurements (detailed) e tc..
Custom Extension Modules System supports ability to add new metadata reader/writers to add new extension schemas
Metadata for Projects Existing v. New? Format of existing? Decision Tree Pros and cons of each approach?
Importing Records Demos MARC report Spreadsheet
Templates Contain the fields (and format) to be provided for online submission (or editing) broken into pages/panels Options related to online submission Can submit files(s), url ? MUST submit file(s), url ? Item visibility ( private v. public ) Include user as author? Email addresses to receive notification of submissions Permissions statement New BibID root ( i.e., IR, AA, CA, etc.. ) Stored as XML files at the instance level Jargon Alert!
Default Metadata Default metadata (or behaviors) to be applied whenever a new item is submitted through the online interface Currently stored as METS files at the instance level. Plan for user specific default metadata in the near future Previously called projects
Upcoming Changes Finish help pages (start some) Ability to upload multiple files Merge uploading files and images (usability problem) Ability to upload existing metadata Reference MARC records in the OPAC / OCLC (Z 39 50 ) Userspecific file holding location
Online Submission Adding a new item through the online web interface
Metadata Editing Editing the metadata for an online item through the web interface
Uploading New Images/Files Adding new images or files to an existing item through the web interface
Adding New Volumes
Spatial Information (beta)
