In this session, members of the organization’s Controlled Vocabulary Committee will discuss the process of building workflows and collaborating with other committees to maintain the portal’s shared controlled vocabulary from the proposing of new terms and term categories, the process for accepting and changing terms, as well as communication about vocabularies with users and members.

Creating and Sharing Date Metadata

Date metadata can be challenging with ambiguous and uncertain dates while trying to tackle platform limitations and facilitating searching and browsing. This session includes tips for creating and sharing date metadata with the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) while considering nuances with specific platforms, including Samvera Hyrax, DSpace, and CONTENTdm. Guidance includes ISO 8601, the Extended Date/Time Format, and the W3C Date and Time Formats

Presenter: Annamarie C. Klose (The Ohio State University Libraries)

Developing a Metadata Application Profile Supporting Interoperability, Research, and Data Harvesting for a Digital Library of Music Sources

The Sounding Spirit Digital Library (SSDL), an initiative of the Sounding Spirit Collaborative at Emory University’s Center for Digital Scholarship, is a thematic research collection of 1,300 digitized books from seven contributing institutions. This presentation will discuss the development of the SSDL Metadata Application Profile (MAP), which supports the creation of robust metadata. The profile expands the project’s reach by including fields corresponding to the requirements of three data sharing partners as well as fields of interest to researchers.

Presenter: Jesse P. Karlsberg (Emory Center for Digital Scholarship and Emory University Department of Music)
