D103 - Metadata for Digital Assets & Repositories

1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
DeAnza III (Portola)
Kenn Bicknell, Manager, Policy Research & Library Services, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, USA
Mary Wahl, Digital Services Librarian, California State University, Northridge
Lauren Magnuson, Systems and Emerging Technologies Librarian, California State University, Northridge

Bicknell provides an overview of how libraries, archives and muse- ums are engaging users in content creation to supplement digital resources, as well as increasingly relying on public participation in the description and access points for their digitized assets. He touches on other issues that arise from crowdsourced participation, including metadata creation, quality control, online sharing, and preservation and also how these types of projects are scalable to smaller collec- tions or user groups to inspire local communities. The second presen- tation discusses tools and strategies for migration of metadata from digital repositories such as CONTENTdm to open-source repositories such as Hydra or Islandora which have linked data capabilities. It looks at how the structure of the data needs to be prepared in order to take advantage of future semantic and linked data interoperability in these systems. It covers typical issues encountered while exploring metadata migration, including mapping and normalizing data, understanding various metadata schema, identifying and describing relationships among objects, and presents a case study describing how an existing digital collection was mapped for ingestion into an open-source Hydra repository.
