Title:Practicum Final Report: Metadata Reprocessing Techniques
Author(s):Chilana, Parmit
Subject(s):IMLS DCC

Abstract:My role in this practicum has been to understand metadata reprocessing and augmentation techniques and how they can be applied to the Institute of Museum and Library Services Digital Collections and Content Collection (IMLSDCC) project. The preliminary strategies consist of various scripts and XSLT transformations that have been adopted from the UIUC CIC metadata portal. While many of the steps are generic and are applicable to all collections, there is often need to customize the transformations according to the nature of the collection. I have mainly contributed to this project by understanding and documenting the reprocessing steps in detail and carrying out metadata analyses of several of the harvested collections which serves as a pre-step to the processing.
