OAI Metadata for I-Witness collection

Project Wiki page
Public web site

Source data: Production XML files are in the I-Witness Xubmit repository. While there is a collection-level MARC record, we want to share item-level records via OAI-PMH.

A static snapshot of the Xubmit data as of 11/9/2010, for testing, is attached.

(tick) oai_dc

metadataPrefix: oai_dc
target namespace: http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/2.0/oai_dc/
schema location: http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/2.0/oai_dc.xsd
method of generating: standard MODS->DC stylesheet
sample oai_dc record: i_witness_dcrecord.xml

(question) try to use standard MODS->DC stylesheet; if this seems to have many problems, see if TEI to DC for the Indiana Magazine of History works better. Also build on work Matt has done with TEI to oai_dc for the Brevier Reports.

(tick) QDC

metadataPrefix: qdc
target namespace: http://epubs.cclrc.ac.uk/xmlns/qdc/
schema location: http://epubs.cclrc.ac.uk/xsd/qdc.xsd
method of generating: standard MODS->QDC stylesheet
sample QDC record: i_witness_qdcrecord.xml

(tick) MODS 3.4

metadataPrefix: mods_3.4
target namespace: http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3
schema location: http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3/mods-3-4.xsd
method of generating: project specific stylesheet: iwitness_tei2mods.xsl
sample MODS record: i-witness_4.xml

start from TEI to MODS for the Indiana Magazine of History, and adjust from there. Also might get some ideas from the Emory stylesheet linked from here. Also build on work Matt has done with TEI to oai_dc for the Brevier Reports.

If these records look like they're missing vital data, consider finding a way to pull some in from the collection level MARC record.
