October 2001Presentation D1: Content Creation and Content Management 5 The best-practice-analysis Analysis of the relevant environment The instrument: a catalogue of criteria to adopt for the analysis. Orientation on the international State-of-the-Art Typical features have to be adopted Learning from best and worst practices Take up excellent features, avoid mistakes Give Techies an idea how to realize Working by examples
October 2001Presentation D1: Content Creation and Content Management 6 Object types, size, covered themes, data management, systems Collections Goals, general, functional and technical requirements Requirements of the different user groups Business processes Description of core processes/functions Definition of existing and new products/ services Specification of various use situations The audit concept A structured analysis of the state-of-the-art Requirements (content provider) Requirements (user) Products & services Use cases The instrument: a questionnaire to be filled out by all content partners.

Gruppensprecher Collections Documentation Digitising Standards For most collections catalogues are available: partly just in paper-based form, partly in electronic form (MySQL, MS Access, Domain-specific systems: ADLIB, Museum System, STAR, Libris) Degree of digitising varies: Big players like ALI could provide a big amount of digitised object, most of the partners did not started digitising activities or could provide a more or less small selection (on the average some hundred objects) Use of own data structures dependant on object types, Usage of international standards (e.g. MARC, SPECTRUM, ) only in big institutions, own subject classifications schemes or adaptions of international systems (e. g. AAT) Some main findings

Indexing of fields, vocabulary control, data import and export facilities... Some main findings Functional requirements (examples)
