Abstract:The Illinois Digital Heritage Hub (IDHH) gathers and enhances metadata from contributing institutions from around Illinois and provides this metadata to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) for greater access. The IDHH helps contributors shape their metadata to the standards recommended and required by the DPLA in part by analyzing and enhancing aggregated metadata. In late 2018, the IDHH undertook a project to address a particularly problem-prone field, Type metadata. This paper walks through the project, detailing the process of gathering data for analysis using the DPLA API, analyzing the data using OpenRefine, and data remediation through XSL transformations, local improvements by provider institutions, and the DPLA ingestion system’s quality controls.
