1 METS Awareness Training Case studies

2 Case study 1: a slide collection Title Astragalus aristaus Description Botanical engraving - coloured - of Astragalus aristaus Date (issued) 1832 Publisher London (England): Richard Taylor and Co. Author Sibthorp, John, Editor Lindley, John, Artist Bauer, Ferdinand, Engraver Sowerby, John E. (John Edward), Subject Botany -- Greece (LCSH) Legumes -- Greece (LCSH)

3 What facilities do you want to offer your users when using this collection? – Browsing by Title Personal names – Author – Artist – Engraver – Editor Subject Date – Searching by all of these? – Navigation of collection by thumbnail image?

4 Descriptive – MODS (Metadata Object Description Schema) – Dublin Core? – MARCXML (if pre-existing MARC records) Administrative – MIX: NISO Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images What extension schemas should you use for descriptive and administrative metadata?

5 What standards would you adopt for metadata content (name authorities, subject headings)? Names: – Library of Congress Names Authority File (LCNAF) Subjects: – Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) – Any others?

6 What files will you include in your and how will they be arranged? Archival images – Uncompressed TIFFs (colour or greyscale) – Group IV compressed bitonal TIFFs (bitonal) – Held on archival file server Deliverable images – JPEGS or GIFS – Possibly more than one to allow viewing at differing resolutions Thumbnails – JPEGS or GIFS

7 How will you arrange your ? Probably no internal structure if each METS file contains metadata for a single image only Possibly treat METS file as holder for collection of images – Group into categories? – Work out a logical sequence

8 Case study 2: a collection of online books Title A Description of the Western Islands of Scotland including the Isle of Man : Comprising an account of their Geological Structure; with remarks on their Agricultural Scenery, and Antiquities. Description An account of the Western Isles of Scotland, including the Isle of Man, giving accounts of the region's geology, with additional descriptions of its geography, including agriculture and landscape, and its early cultural heritage; drawing from a selection of papers originally compiled for the Geological Society. In three volumes, including atlas. The second volume discusses the islands not covered in volume one Volume no. 2 Date (issued) 1819 Publisher London (England): Archibald Constable & Co., and Hurst, Robinson & Co. Author Macculloch, John, Subject Local geography (LCSH) Local history (LCSH) Geology (LCSH)

9 What facilities do you want to offer your users when using this collection? – Browsing of collection by Title Author Any others? – Searching by these? – Navigation of internal structure of books by chapters? by page numbers by thumbnails?

11 Descriptive – MODS (Metadata Object Description Schema) – Dublin Core? – MARCXML (if pre-existing MARC records) Administrative – MIX: NISO Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images What extension schemas should you use for descriptive and administrative metadata?

12 What standards would you adopt for metadata content (name authorities, subject headings)? Names: – Library of Congress Names Authority File (LCNAF) Subjects: – Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) – Any others?

13 What files will you include in your and how will they be arranged? Archival images – Uncompressed TIFFs (colour or greyscale) – Group IV compressed bitonal TIFFs (bitonal) – Held on archival file server Deliverable images – JPEGS or GIFS – Possibly more than one to allow viewing at differing resolutions Thumbnails – JPEGS or GIFS

14 How will you arrange your ? A simple nested structure to allow navigation – Chapters Sub-chapters – Page Possibly more than one if the physical hierarchy does not nest neatly within the logical on

15 Case study 3: a collection of online texts Jude the Obscure Originally published serially in Harper`s New Monthly Magazine vols. 90 and 91, as The Simpletons. Thomas Hardy 488 pages Harper & Brothers New York 1896 Published: Languages: English Latin Greek Part First AT MARYGREEN "Yea, many there be that have run out of their wits for women, and become servants for their sakes. Many also have perished, have erred, and sinned, for women.... O ye men, how can it be but women should be strong, seeing they do thus?" -- ESDRAS. I THE schoolmaster was leaving the village, and everybody seemed sorry. The miller at Cresscombe lent him the small white tilted cart and horse to carry his goods to the city of his destination, about twenty miles off, such a vehicle proving of quite sufficient size for the departing teacher's effects. For the schoolhouse had been partly furnished by the managers, and the only cumbersome article possessed by the master, in addition to the packing-case of books, was a cottage piano that he had bought at an auction during the year in which he thought of learning instrumental music. But the enthusiasm having waned he had never acquired any skill in playing, and the purchased article had been a perpetual trouble to him ever since in moving house.

16 What facilities do you want to offer your users when using this collection? – Browsing by Title Author Any others? – Searching by all of these? – Full-text searching – Navigation by Table of contents Page numbers

17 Descriptive – MODS (Metadata Object Description Schema) – Dublin Core? – MARCXML (if pre-existing MARC records) Administrative – Schema for Technical Metadata for Text (NYU) What extension schemas should you use for descriptive and administrative metadata?

18 What standards would you adopt for metadata content (name authorities, subject headings)? Names: – Library of Congress Names Authority File (LCNAF) Subjects: – Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) – Any others?

19 What files will you include in your and how will they be arranged? Texts – Marked up in TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) – Preferably following TEI in Libraries guidelines TEI file could feasibly be embedded in METS file itself, or otherwise referenced from it

20 How will you arrange your ? Structural map will probably duplicate structure of TEI file Use element within the to delineate each meaningful section of the text Alternatively, one could include a single in the structural map for the whole text, and rely on the structure in the TEI file for navigation

21 What facilities do you want to offer your users when using this collection? – Browsing by Title Personal names – Author – Artist – Engraver – Editor Subject Date – Searching by all of these? – Navigation of collection by thumbnail image?

22 Case study 4: a collection of videos Title:Night Mail Duration:22 mins 46 secs [1] Credits:An ABFD Release The GPO Film Unit Producer: John Grierson Directors: Basil Wright, Harry Watt, Pat Jackson Scenario: John Grierson, Harry Watt, Basil Wright Verses: W.H.

23 Descriptive – MODS (Metadata Object Description Schema) – Dublin Core? Administrative – VIDEOMD: Video Technical Metadata Extension Schema What extension schemas should you use for descriptive and technical metadata?

24 What standards would you adopt for metadata content (name authorities, subject headings)? Names: – Library of Congress Names Authority File (LCNAF) Subjects: – Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) – Any others?

25 What files will you include in your and how will they be arranged? Video files – MPEG (mpg) – Quicktime (mov) – Windows Media (wmv) – Realplayer (ram) – Possibly more than one to allow viewing at differing resolutions – Are files for downloading or streaming only

26 How will you arrange your ? A detailed structural map is necessary to allow browsing by segments of the video Use the element to assign timecodes within each segment
