Improving Access to Special Collections by Automating Descriptive Metadata Creation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At the Marriott Library, the Digital Library Services Department has partnered with Special Collections to design new workflows to improve the efficiency of metadata creation and discovery for both physical and digital resources. This panel will present brief overviews of the workflows, as well as demonstrate free or low cost tools and technologies involved in improving discoverability for special collections items. Workflows described will include using XSLT and Excel to generate item descriptions from an EAD finding aid, using MarcEdit to create MARC records from finding aids, using XSLT to transform ProQuest XML metadata about theses and dissertations, and writing custom scripts for generating MARC records from an inventory spreadsheet.
