      • Users can modify fields in existing metadata records
    • (Considered for later versions) Each item belongs to only one collection
      • Users can choose to which collection an item belongs at the time of item creation
      • Users can change to which collection an item belongs
  • Metadata
    • Information about photos are stored in Fedora in MODS and DC descriptive formats

Notes About Sample Data of Feb 08

  • See these attachments: Geo keywords, keywords, metadata and field list
  • File names and archive ID are different for the Stone Collection (Stone-NNN.NN.tif vs. NNN.NN)
  • Date field values:
    • Carter: Mmm-YY (e.g. Sep-73)
    • Holsoe: Mixed some MMMYYWN (e.g. SEP74W3) and some Mmm-YY
    • Stone : Mmm-YY (Aug-70)
  • Condition field:
    • Carter and Stone: a number 1..n
    • Holsoe: Text description like Out of focus, Embedded dirt, etc.
  • Copy right field: LCP/IU. Should this be stored as it is in the descriptive metadata?

Information we still need

  • (tick) A complete field list
  • (tick) A MODS record format corresponding to the field list
  • No labels
